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.

On February 19 2009, the sunroof on my 2008 Scion Tc shattered without warning. As I was driving at 40 mph on a paved road, with the windows up and the sunroof closed, a loud bang (similar to a gunshot) occurred. Glass sprayed all over the interior of the car. Outside of the vehicle, the wind deflector was stuck in the up position and the sunroof bulged. The posterior portion of the vehicle had scratches in the paint from the explosion. The dealership would not cover damage as warranty repair and insisted I go through my insurance. I had the vehicle repaired at an independent body shop and have the damaged sunroof in my possession. This isn't an isolated incident. There are other Tc owners reporting the same issue.

Bought a Scion Tc in may of 2008 and within a week of purchase, noticed a rattle coming from the moonroof assembly. Made appointment with dealership immediately for service, and brought it back several times, as well as opened a case with Scion to investigate. No repairs have been done. Dealership and Scion have been difficult and not at all helpful, got the major run around. Told there is nothing they can do because there is no tsb for the problem, and it is a "characteristic of the car" - they all rattle like that. (my vehicles assembly only rattles on the drivers side) concerned this might become a safety issue - this is one large pane of glass rattling over time and have read prior complaints on "shattering" moonroofs. Have filed for lemon law since this is a breech of warranty that no repairs have been attempted, but will not be heard in court until April of 2009. This is a safety concern.
