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.

Bought a new 2007 Fj cruiser and drove with caution due to awareness of windshield being broken on other people's vehicles. Despite my best efforts, I had a broken windshield after about 4 months of ownership.

The windshield on the 2007 Toyota Fj cruiser is very fragile/brittle. Very small impacts from road debris initiate a break in the windshield which then quickly propagate into long cracks which can create an impairment in the field of vision. In my 26 years of owning vehicles, this is by far the most fragile windshield I have had experience with.

2007 Fj cruiser has a bad windshield design that causes it to crack with no contact. It starts as a crack from the bottom bellow the wiper and then curves left, on the drivers side.

2007 Fj cruiser. During normal driving I got a pea sized ding on the windshield approximately 4 months ago. April 25th got a crack which is still traveling toward the passenger a pillar. May 15th got a quarter sized star. All resulting from small (I mean small, really small) projectiles. Glad I did not replace the windshield 4 months ago, otherwise I would have had to replace it two more times. This windshield is a disaster. I owned 6 cars over 27 years and had one busted windshield from a 3" piece of concrete. I own my fj for 11 months and have three places where the windshield is damaged from incidents that should not have damaged it as much as they did. Toyota designed an upright windshield (a design I love), presumably understands the laws of physics (which I don't), and did nothing to mitigate the design in order to make the fj windshield last the way a more steeply windshield made from the same material would last. This is an off road vehicle for crying out loud! what were they thinking - that pebbles will magically avoid the fj windshield because the fj is so good looking? I plan on replacing the windshield with a ppg product. Toyota does not deserve the business in my judgment.

I own a 2007 Fj cruiser I purchased in April 2007 I have 6,000 miles on it and have had four rocks hit the window in various locations and have 4 spider cracks from each hit, I repaired one and dont know if its worth all the extra money to fix the other three. This windshield seems really weak and I am worried a bigger rock would explode the entire windshield. Thanks dan gray.

2007 Fj cruiser, small pebble struck at low at 35 mph and produced a scar which spread to an 8" crack. Windshields are the subject of numerous failures by consumers. Poor quality safety glass used.

Windshield had received numerous chips and pits eventually cracking within the first 5000 miles. Previous Jeep Wrangler with vertical windshied still in great shape after 100K mile. I truly believe there is a problem with the Fj cruiser windshield that it is damaged so easily. At $1500 to replace this is an insurance nightmare.

Within 2500 miles of owning my new Fj cruiser a small rock flew up and chipped my drivers windshield. While it is not a viewing hazard and has not expanded yet I think Toyota should look into using a better grade product as this is not a isolated incident. I live in Florida and it is covered with no detectable under my insurance but, others states don't have this policy and owners should not have to come out of pocket to replace a inferior product.

I have 2 windshields fail in less than 5 months. Minor pebbles have cracked both windshields at least 12 inches or more. There are hundreds of other people with the same issue. The windshields are not designed properly or manufactured incorrectly. There is a risk someone will be critically hurt when a large stone or other object hits this glass.
