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 purchased my Scion Xb 2006 in August of 2006. Last week, wed. July 9, 2008, an L shaped crack appeared on my front windshield. It appeared overnight out of nowhere. I discovered it in the morning. There are no signs of trauma to the windshield. The crack starts at the very top edge of the windshield and goes in an L shape. The next morning (thur, July 10) a second L-shaped crack appeared in my windshield in the same fashion. This one is on the lower left side and also starts at the very edge of the windshield. Again, there was no trauma to the windshield and the crack appeared out of nowhere. The two cracks are now heading toward each other, and I am worried this defective windshield will crack. After researching this issue online and talking to mechanics, I have found out that this is a common defect in the Scion Xb 2006 model. Many owners have reported L-shaped cracks appearing out of nowhere and filed complaints. The mechanic I spoke with said that he has replaced many cracked windshields on Scion Xb's. he attributes what he termed this design defect to the fact that the car sits so low and the steep grade of the windshield. I know you have received numerous other complaints about this problem, and I urge you to take action.
