Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I was driving to work this morning and around 7:00 am. It was approximately 20 degrees outside and I tried the rear defroster. The rear defroster has worked only about 20% of the time for the last few months and not at all for the last 3 weeks; so needless to say I was very surprised when it actually turned on today. 10 minutes after turning on the defrost I was driving approx 30mph through town when I heard a loud bang inside the truck. It was loud enough that I swerved and looked around to see if people were throwing ice chunks at cars or shooting bb guns. A few minutes later I noticed that the rear windshield on the driver side of the truck had completely shattered. The only thing holding the glass together is the tint tape. The window will need a complete replacement.
