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.

Traveling on interstate 64 when the rear glass shattered and imploded into the vehicle. Glass was projected into the cockpit of the car (all over the place). Drivers side window was down completely, along with the passenger window down approximately 3". dealer ship was called and they ask that the car be returned immediately. There were no other passengers in the vehicle. The driver was covered with glass debris and also obtained a small cut on forehead. Traffic was mild.

: the contact stated while attempting to open the drivers side window, it came off the tract. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. The dealer maneuvered the window back into the tract, however it was determined the problem would reoccur due to the type of materials the tract was made of. The manufacturer has not been alerted.

Rear windshield lifts off at right rear pillar when the air of closing the driver or passenger door pushes it out of the frame. Two days later at the service appointment, the rear windshield had lifted off the entire roof line, with a height of 2 inches at the right rear pillar. Honda service dept. Said they'd never seen anything like it; the caulking had not been sufficient to keep the windshield in place. They reglued it. An acquaintance in NJ saw the same thing happen to the 2006 Honda coupe in front of him. He changed lanes fast.
