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.

Avalon 6-cyl

Sunroof spontaneously exploded/shattered while driving at 70 mph on freeway on Nov. 25-2015. Loud noise (like gunshot or explosion), followed immediately by sound of wind entering car and shattered glass rolling in space above interior sunroof closure. Pulled off highway, stopped vehicle, found large hole in middle of sunroof with jagged edges and numerous shards of glass between remains of exterior sunroof and interior cover. Fortunately, interior cover was closed or we would have been sprayed with glass fragments. Temp outside in 60S, dry. No trucks, overpasses, or road debris when it occurred -- totally spontaneous. Vehicle purchased in November 2014, Toyota cool springs, franklin, tn. Approximate mileage at occurrence 9,430.
