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.

While driving on an interstate traveling 70 mph the backseat passenger side window (which was closed completely) shattered and imploded into the entire backseat and floor of vehicle. Driving straight, 70 mph on interstate with cruise control on, no object collision. Vehicle is approx. 6 months old (purchased new) with just under 10K miles on it. Vehicle only serviced by Honda dealership and otherwise in mint condition. Affected window was undamaged prior to the event; no cracks, star markings, or chips noted on window prior to event. Back of car filled with shattered glass and tiny shards of glass. Fortunately nobody was in the backseat at the time.

Chipped and/or cracked Honda windshield seems to be a problem. This is our 3rd Honda CR-V (2010, 2013, and 2016) and with each vehicle, the windshield would chip easily from a stone or pebble on the highway; try to repair but the chip/crack would spread; and so, each time the windshield had to be replaced. Safelite tried to repair it on our current CR-V since our insurance company recommended them but the crack spread. We normally go to norman's (burlington NJ) as they do a great job. They replaced it with a ppg oem at about $300 total, which is far less than you wanted to charge. My complaint is why do Honda windshields crack so easily" we've had other brands such as Jeep and GM/Chevrolet and they don't seem to get chips or cracks when a stone hits the windshield. Are we unlucky with Honda or are their windshields weak" the replacement ppg oems seem to be stronger as well.
