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 on the expressway the car reduced speed, until it stopped which almost made someone run into the back of me. The windshield blades do not function, the interior lights will not come on all the time. Ive taken my car to several shops they were not able to tell me what's wrong with the vehicle stating the problem does not show up on the diagnostic machine. I am to the point of being afraid of driving my car, I never know when or if it will function properly.

My husband was driving my 2006 Ford Taurus to work one crisp fall morning, when all of the sudden he heard a loud sound that he at first thought to be a gunshot. What had happened was that the rear window glass had shattered all on its own. After further inspection he noticed that one of the little black heaters that are connected to the glass to work the rear defogger coils was melted to a piece of glass. We are inclined to believe that the rear defogger mechanism failed to auto shut off after the window defogged and over heated which in turn over heated the cold glass (it was chilly on this morning) and caused it to shatter. We are just thankful that no one was sitting in the back seat at the time this occurred and was injured by the shattered glass.
