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 on my way to work when I heard a big pop and realized my sunroof busted open. It was closed at the time it was not hot outside and no other vehicles around me.

Optima 4-cyl

  • 36,531 miles
I was driving my 2011 Kia Optima ex on a residential area. My speed was about 25 mph when suddenly there was a loud explosion sound. At the time that this occurred there were no cars or semis near my vehicle. After my 4 year old daughter and I recovered from the initial shock, I pulled over to check my vehicle and I notice the back window sunroof had a hole in the middle close by the shark tale and was still shattering. At that point, I had no other choice and had to drive my daughter to school. Once I dropped her off I dropped off my vehicle and a family members house and borrowed a vehicle, since my vehicle was unsafely to drive in that condition.
