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.

I had just rolled up the windows on my truck, when I heard a loud pop come from the passenger door. About 15 minutes later the window dropped down into the door. This happened about 4 years ago. This is twice in the 8 years I have had the truck. Needs to be a recall on this since seems to be happening to a lot of people.

Driving home and suddenly there was a loud bang. I thought someone shot out my window. After arriving home I looked at it and realized that the glass had dropped down into the door. I took it to the dealer and paid $350 for the repair. These window regulators need to be recalled or banned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When accelerating slowly from a stop light, the drivers side window fell down into the door. Apparently the window regulator broke, an issue which is documented on numerous internet sites. The window dropping into the door created a very distracting driving situation, not to mention visual safety hazards as in today during rainy, foggy, humid conditions affecting the visibility through the remaining glass in the vehicle.

I have powered windows on my truck. Today while driving to work and getting on the highway going South on I-35 in okc, ok. I had the driver side window partially rolled down and once I was at highway speeds I decided to roll the window up, as I usually have always done before. After the window reached the closed position, I heard a loud pop as if a rock hit the window and immediately after that, the window fell down and slammed into the bottom well of the door panel. To my amazement and not understanding what just occurred, I tried to re-raise the window back up unsuccessfully. So far its sitting in the parking lot, taped up with plastic over it since its about to rain until I can get it taken care of. On another note the other rear back passengers windows squeak when they are raised or lowered. What next!! probably more of the same. Sweet!!
