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.

The rear window driver side spider webbed. It was 55 degrees out and I opened my windows. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me. The other time was the passenger side rear window in 11/2013. I believe Ford needs to take responsibility for this.it has to be associated with the defroster.

I was on my way home from work. It was 22 degrees (F) out..I turned my rear defroster on, my 2010 F-150 platinum on. Driving about 57 mph and I heard a loud bang like I was getting shot at.. I looked back to realize that my rear passenger side window shattered..(the passenger side of the three piece power rear window).

Driving home with my family from in-laws house. Upon starting the truck I turned on the rear defroster, about 5 min later I heard a loud bang, like something landed on the roof. Later on realized it was the passenger side section of my rear window. It shattered, but remained fully in tact with no impact spot from inside or out. After googling this I see it is a common occurrence among these vehicles.

With the temp outside being about 48 degrees I had my rear window defroster on and the heat on inside. While I was driving I heard a loud pop, like the truck was being shot at or a large bolder was thrown at vehicle. When I stop the truck to see what happened I noticed that the rear window on the right hand side was shattered. I inspected the vehicle closer when I got home and noticed that there was nothing in the bed of the truck, like a rock or some other object and there was no hole in window.

F-150

  • 43,500 miles
While driving into work at 0445 hrs on a smooth road with an outside air temp around 5 degree I heard a loud bang coming from the cab area of the truck. I had let the truck warm up before driving and turned the rear window defrost on approx. 2 miles before I heard the noise. In checking my vehicle, I noticed that passenger side rear window had busted. When I spoke with the Ford dealership, they said they were aware of the problem but did not feel it was bad enough to have a recall. It sounds like it is going to cost approx. $800 if it is not covered by my warranty.
