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.

A few days ago, we were driving when our sun roof exploded. We heard the loudest bang I have heard and then glass started falling through the edges of the sun shade that was closed. Had it not been for the sun shade, I am sure we would have been showered with glass shards, and there is no doubt that we would have wrecked the car. When we pulled over the moon roof was obviously blown outward, which I have pictures of. After a brief research I found that this issue was a common one. When my wife called Toyota the first guy said he had seen this before, but Toyota would not cover it under the extra bump to bumper warranty, we bought. Toyota referred me to the toll free number (1-800-331-4331) to lodge a complaint and see if they could do anything. Toyota gave me a case number (1507133039) and said someone from customer relations would be calling me back. The guy that called me back was dennis king from the Toyota dealership in riverdale, Utah where we first called, and he said he couldn't do anything that it would have to be Toyota that authorizes any repair. I have included just a few of the web links that discuss the issue of exploding moon roofs.
