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.

I was driving, at about 35mph, when the driver side, rear sliding door window exploded! just exploded, all over my 13 yr. Old daughter! she was covered in glass, and thank heaven, she turned her head away, just as it blew! when the responding officer came, he said that, just 2 weeks earlier, the exact same thing happened, with another minivan! how can this happen" if, my daughter had not turned her head, the glass would have gone right into her eyes! I am furious! luckily, she only had pinhole punctures, from the glass splinters! it could have been a whole lot more serious! my children do not want to ride in this, or any other minivan!! what can I do?" thank you!! ellie.

Both rear side windows leak, carpet and interior are soaked. Vehicle has been taken to dealer 10 times. Dealer cannot remedy the problem. Factory representative stated that was how windows were designed. Consumer was concerned about mold.
