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 was driving down the road, at 55-60 mph and all of a sudden I heard a loud bang, well my sunroof just exploded from the inside out. Nothing hit it, the roads were bare, I wasn't under any trees, nothing. There's a big hole, and surrounding the hole the glass is shattered. I took pictures of it. The glass is pointed out, not in. If something had fell on it, there would have been a lot of glass inside the vehicle but there wasn't. its a brand new car! 2009 Ford Focus. Haven't even had it a year. Company wont cover it under warranty because they believe something hit it. I said no. I did my research and found 3 other Ford vehicles that have had the same thing happen. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be looked at. Its unsafe. I could have had little pieces of glass in my eye!!! or if I had a passenger they would have gotten all these little shards of glass on them. Completely ridiculous. Something needs to be done.
