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.

My 2001 Echo was just sitting in my driveway and the next morning the car had a large crack in the glass.........it was night time and the was no sun or heat to make this happen......I took it to the turnersville Toyota in New Jersey were I bought the car and they laughed at my wife and I.............they claim that a tiny pinpoint dot on the windshield, barely visiable to the naked eye caused this to happen............one pinpoint mark cause a now 10inch crack to form on this windshield........if feel this glass is not up to the standards that it should be....maybe it was a faulty windshield......it am just so upset that they do not want to stand behind their warrenty and just because they are such a large company they think this is a joke....we bought this car new and never in my life have I had this happen to any of my other cars......my 1990 Honda has tons of these marks on the windshield and it never has had a problem with my windshield cracking..........I do not know if there are anymore complaints like this but this to me seems to be a quality problem...the quality of the windshield is at question here and how much protection does it hold for the drive ror the passenger.........even if I take a picture of this mark they claimed caused it you would need a inlarge it tens times to see this mark they claim is the problem and not the quality of the glass........
