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.

Overnight, the moonroof glass broke along the forward leading edge parallel to the metal brace that is in contact with the glass beneath it. Upon closing the door, the fractured glass bowed up and pieces of the shattered glass ended up on the front edge of the roof. Pictures are available, if needed. Note: No debris was found on the moonroof suggesting there was no impact from any outside source. Note: It was negative six degrees Fahrenheit when discovered.
