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. Notes: Aside from peeling paint, the 2008 Honda Odyssey is a pretty reliable, generally trouble-free minivan.

Exploding sunroof. Glass sunroof exploded outward while driving down the road. No other vehicles or over passes nearby. Rural area. Outside temperature was 83 degrees. Ac/C was set at 73 degrees. Car had been H and-washed one day earlier. No flaws were observed in glass sunroof while washing or drying the vehicle. Had sunroof internal slider been open at the time of the glass explosion, the drier and front passenger could have been injured and we could have easily had an accident. This appears to be a design flaw in the glass sunroof. A computer search revealed other reported incidents which were nearly identical on some Honda vehicles and some other make and models. Note: Vehicle roof was not struck by any object prior to incident... updated 04/11/13
