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.

After a night of 28 weather, noticed a crack in the windshield on the passenger side stemming up from the wiper blade area, forming an upside-down "L" shape angled to the passenger side of the vehicle. No impact from an object had occurred. Upon driving the same morning and stopping at a gas station, when I re-entered the vehicle noticed the exact same upside-down L-shape crack had occurred on the drivers side while pumping gas. Again, the crack appeared without any impact from an object. The two L-shaped cracks are symmetrical to each other, one on each side of the windshield, both stemming from the two wiper areas, which seems to be related to having the defrost running during cold weather. I have contacted the dealership and will be going there after work today. Hopefully this will be covered under warranty with no cost to me, as it seems to be a defect in the windshield. The consumer stated the cracked windshield was actually caused by the impact of an object and not due to defective glass. The consumer wished to retract his complaint. Updated 12/12/08.

One month after picking up my 2008 Jeep Commander I was driving down the interstate at approximately 70mph. A rock from a truck in front of me struck the windshield near the frame in front of the driver. I could not initially see the chip. I parked the car in the driveway. When I returned to the car an hour later the chip had expanded into a 12 inch crack that continued to grow over the course of the next week. I filed a claim with my insurance company and had the entire windshield replaced. I thought it was just bad luck until reading the numerous complaints about the inferior Commander windshield.

Only after 3 weeks of driving, the windshield developed a crack starting at the center of the dashboard and spreading up and to the drivers side. There was no impact or object that impacted the windshield that caused this crack. It seemed to occur in response to the heat being lowered in the car during a very cold night (around 28F ). the crack has rapidly spread to about 2 feet in three days.

I just purchased my 2008 Jeep Commander almost 3 weeks ago and I already have a cracked windshield. At first it was just a little star that turned into a very large crack in just a matter of hours. It was a very small rock that made a very big crack. Now my navigation system is bugging out.
