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.

Noticed about a week ago that the rear defrost light stopped coming on when I pushed the button. Had a co-worker ask me what was wrong with one of my rear windows, saying that one of the 3 was noticeably darker than the other 2. the next day, that window blew out into the bed of my truck. Outside temp about 20 degrees, truck had been driven so it was warm. Got back into the truck to go somewhere else, the window blew out. Talked to my salesman, he said the same thing happened to his neighbors truck the week before, also same thing with rear defrost light not working all of the sudden.
