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.

Every now and then I hear this rattling loud noise on my sunroof at slow speed. I noticed that it has something to do with the weather when it's hot above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. I live in Florida and it is hot and humid here. The rattling noise disappears after a minute. It's very strange. After reading all the complaints about sunroof shattered, exploded from other owners, I would like to have this particular model recall before anybody will have a serious injury.

I was driving about 50 mph and I heard a very loud popping sound like a gunshot. I pulled over and saw that my sunroof glass had shattered (spontaneously).
