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.

Driver side rear bed window shattered, while standing still in my driveway. Cold morning and the remote startup was used to warm up truck. I assume the truck automatically turns on defrosters when it senses certain outside temps. Went out to truck while it was running, loaded some things in, closed the door and heard a load pop. Couldn't see what made sound at time and went back int the house. Came back out and got into the truck to go to work and looked through rear window and saw that glass was shattered.

I was driving to work in the rain. I put the rear defrost on to help clear the mirrors. After a couple of minutes I heard a loud bang as if something landed on my roof. I noticed that the drivers side rear windshield was shattered. I have a cap on the bed of the truck, so nothing could have hit it from the outside.

Windshield glare reflection from dash compromises visibility when driving in sunlight. Sunlight reflects off dash causing glare in windshield. Many people have complained (forums online) this has been going on for years and occurs in many vehicles. Auto manufactures need to put extremely non-reflective material on dashes to counter this. A dull dash mat really helps, proving that it can be mitigated.

The contact owns a 2014 Ford F-150. The contact stated that the passenger side mirror created a distortion causing the contact to believe rear vehicles were further than they appeared. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 100.

When I was driving to work today, I noticed in my mirror that my rear drivers side window was shattered. I pulled over to inspect it for vandalism. I saw that it was shattered on the inside. My truck is 6 months old and this is the second time. I bought my truck in July 2014, in Sept 2014 my passenger side windshield got a straight crack in the windshield from top to bottom, again, the crack was on the inside, the dealer told me "a stone did it" and they would not honor a repair or replacement! now the rear window. Its an FX4, 3 sliding rear windows. The dealer again told me "a stone must have done it, because they never seen this before""! really?" I paid $48,000 for this truck and have 750 miles on it and it is costing me hundreds of dollars in repairs already!!! Ford has to replace this and make it right or trade my truck in with a brand new 1....

Parked trk on Friday afternoon. All was fine. Walked my dog at 3am, walked past my trk all was still fine. My wife went to work at 530am we noticed unusual about the trk. I never drove the trk all day, she returned from work at 4pm and called me outside. The passenger door glass was shattered. We called the local police thinking someone hit it. When they arrived, unlocked the vehicle and did an inspection of the scene. No foul play was noticed, they figure poor design and or cold weather.

Was parked in my driveway when a section of the rear window exploded. The vehicle was warming up(auto start) for about 5 minutes before my daughter and I got in to leave when we heard a loud pop. I looked back and noticed the rear driver side window was shattered. There were little pieces of glass throughout the back of the vehicle and I'm sure landed on my daughters hair and clothes. The vehicle is a FX4 super crew cab with the sliding 3 piece rear window. I am located in barrie, Ontario Canada and the weather was 0 degrees celcius when it happened.
