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 hit the remote start on my truck this morning and when I walked out to my truck and got in to head to work I heard a loud pop and didn't know what it was at first. I looked back and my back right rear window was shattered. I don't know how or what happened. I just heard the noise and looked around and noticed my window exploded. I got out to look at it and when I shut my door the window fell apart.

Driver side-rear defrost window shattered for no reason. The truck has a cap on the bed. Now have to get the cap removed to have it repaired. Ford said no way to cover even the $100 deductible. Terrible service when I spent $30K and they can't chip in when there is a defect. And the entire rear window will need to be replace, not just the section.

The rear window on my F150 broke while my wife was warming up the car. The only thing she did was turn on the rear window defrost.

Driving down the road at about 20mph. 7 and 9 yr children in back seat. Turned rear defroster on and about 2 min later heard very loud noise like something hitting my roof. Didn't know what happened till I looked in my mirror and saw driver side rear stationary glass pane spider webbed. Looked at roof and see nowhere where something hit roof. From what I am reading this is a common problem that has not been addressed by Ford.
