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.

Honda Fit windshields develop cracks with minor or even no impact! there is a growing number of reports regarding this potential safety issue and Honda needs to resolve this. This is our second cracked windshield we found when getting into the car in the morning.

Long stress fracture in the windshield, starting from edge on passenger's side and extending for about 2 feet towards the center. Fracture appeared for no apparent reason, and there was no chip, hence was not caused by a stone. The windshield did not shatter, though in researching online, found that many other Honda Fit owners have experienced the same problem, with the fracture appearing with no obvious cause, and in some cases on cars that had only recently been purchased. The dealer replaced for free under warranty, though others online reported that dealers tried to argue that it was caused by a stone. This is my daughter's car, and I'm concerned it may happen again, and that there is a risk that the screen could shatter or separate at the crack while she is driving, hence causing a major driving hazard and possible crash.

The failure and current mileage was 6,000.

I was sitting in the parked car listening to the radio before work when I saw a foot long crack form half way up the right edge of the windshield horizontally toward the center of the windshield. There was practically no people or cars around and it was a clean straight line crack. I found an online forum on where there were many people having stress crack issues with their Fit windshields. I went to the dealer and they found a chip in the crack about the size of a pinhead, 2 inches in from the edge of the windshield. They claimed a stone hit the windshield to cause the chip and suggested contraction expansion of the glass caused the crack. They refused to cover the damages under warranty. A phone call to Honda automobile customer service claimed no reports of issues with Fit windshields and also refused warranty coverage even after mentioning the online forum.

While driving to work, there was a loud pop and a crescent-shaped crack appeared on the windshield. The crack starts at the bottom of the windshield near the driver's heat vent, runs up approx 6 inches and goes over about 18 inches to the other heat vent on the passenger side. Temperature was around 20 degrees, heater was on. A quick search of web logs indicates numerous similar complaints (see
