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 on the 91 freeway on Saturday Feb 28th the sunroof blew out almost causing an accident - don't have any reason why this happened nothing hit the car it just simply blew out and shattered glass all over the back seats and the cars driving behind me. I almost veered into the next lane and almost caused a major collision.

My sunroof exploded. I had just entered the highway (there was no overpass near me) merging into traffic. I heard a loud pop like a gun shot and glass rained down on me. I immediately called my dealership and drove it in. There was no determination as to the cause. Dealership had to completely replace the sunroof. Had to claim on my insurance and pay the deductible - roughly total repair cost was $1200.
