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.

No crash has occurred so far. Defective windshield material may cause a crash in the future. Chemical changes inside the windshield (or possible delamination of internal plastic material) is causing a spreading area of the windshield to be not clear. The problem is only noticeable if I am driving into the sun. The sun shining on the defective area reduces the visibility through that portion of the glass to an unsafe degree. The problem was first noticed about 2 years ago and affected only a small portion of the front windshield. The problem has steadily grown worse until about 15 to 20% of the windshield is affected. The problem was discussed with a Ford dealer and a Ford area representative. They advised me to change the windshield and save the receipt in the event a recall notice is issued. I currently have an appointment with an independent auto glass supplier to replace the windshield.
