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.

There were no extraneous variables leading to the rear window explosion. The police were not able to find any contact entry or evidence of vandalism and indicated it was possibly defective glass. Dealership indicated that they would not investigate the possibility of previous stress cracks or design defects, although they admitted that this class of vehicle has severe internal pressure fluctuations while a rear passenger window is open traveling at highway speeds, and this was experienced the day before. The glass shattered while the car was parked, with the temperature being between 65 & 70F, with nobody in it. There were no prior issues with the glass. The only issue with the vehicle prior to the glass was the pressure fluctuations.
