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.

The sunroof exploded while driving to work this morning. It made a loud pop and then I could hear the glass shattering. It has stayed in tact but is shattered.

MAZDA5 4-cyl

As I hit highway cruising speed, the glass on my sunroof exploded. Fortunately I had the sun shade closed. However, I was in the middle of nowhere with no shoulder to pull off on. Part of the glass was sucked out and blew back behind me. There was no other traffic on the road, and no possibility of the glass being struck or damaged. Just shattered. Exploded. With my kids in the car!
