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.

2005 Scion Xb windshield crack in the midline, between the wipers. For no apparent reason the crack continuously increasing length. Didn't hit anything nor it occured from some object. Bought this car used from the dealer and from the looks of it this windshield is not oem stock, might be replaced windshield and possibly this issue has occured before.

We have a 2005 Scion Xb. Road debris hit the car one month ago, but the crack on the windshield, starting on the passenger side edge, appeared 2 days back. It appears unrelated. Insurance policy did not cover cost of replacement of the windshield. The crack is more than a foot long.

The Scion Xb seems particularly prone to windshield damage. A tiny rock hit it once before, and a large crack formed almost immediately. I replaced the entire windshield and then within 2 weeks, I had the same situation again.
