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.

On 3/22/05 I was completely stopped at a traffic light with no-one behind my van when my back liftgate window exploded. This is the second window in the past 5 months to explode in my van. (see complaint of incident 10-23-04) the only commonality between these events was that both mornings were cool and the inside of the van had been warmed for 20-30 minutes. The dealer and glass repair company asked if the frame had been bent in the past, but this van has never been in an accident of any kind -not even a fender-bender.

On 10/22/04 I dropped my child at school, and exiting the parking lot the left rear side window of my 2001 Windstar van exploded. I was in a school parking lot, traveling approximately 10 mph. On 3/22/05 I was completely stopped at a traffic light with no-one behind my van when my back liftgate window exploded. The only commonality between these events was that both mornings were cool and the inside of the van had been warmed for 20-30 minutes.

While the vehicle was parked, the rear liftgate window shattered twice. With both occurrences, the weather was moderate, parked, locked and unoccupied, no keys were in the ignition.
