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.

While driving South on RT33, near snydersville pa, at about 60mph the driver's window "exploded" I.e. shattered into thousands of pieces. There was no warning of impending breaking-up. This is the only occurrence at this time. No one was injured and I know of no witnesses. I shall attempt to have the damage repaired under warranty.
