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 have a 2002 Ford Windstar minivan. This morning the rear windshield broke completly. There was no impact of any kind to cause this failure. No one was injured, and my insurance will cover all but $100 for the replacement.

The contact stated that there was a leak inn the windshield while driving in the rain. Water came through the left driver side area along the top corner. She took the vehicle to a dealership for inspection where she was referred to a glass repair shop. The repair shop said the entire front windshield would have to be replaced. The windshield wiggles to the touch. There are no visible cracks or blemishes. No explanation why this happened. No repairs or corrections at this time.
