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 was driving, making a left hand turn from a stop light and then heard a very loud bang! the sunroof above me then shattered and fell all over me, the car, and outside. I pulled over to inspect the cause and see the damage. There wasn't a sign of why it happened (rock or anything of the sort), but I had shards of glass in the top of my head, back down the inside of my shirt, and the glass still hanging was flying off. Thankfully I had sunglasses on, or else something would have flown into my eyes. Actually have a scratch from the incident on my new prescription sunglasses now. I researched a possible issue or recall and came across a few postings with the exact same issue! I heard good and bad stories on how it was resolved, but its scary nonetheless. This happened today and am second guessing a sunroof, although I've always wanted one. If this is starting to become a known issue with a new model, I hope its treated with caution and swiftness. Please call or email me if you have any questions. Updated 08/15/12
