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.

Windshield was chipped by some debris while driving on the highway going about 55 mph, the size was half a centimeter, if that. The next morning it turned into a 6 inch crack and has grown even bigger in the past couple weeks to where it has come to block my vision. Other cars that I have owned had chips in the windshield, but never developed into a crack. I am thinking the windshield is too, too, thin for it to be practical for a vehicle traveling highway speeds and have read that this is a common occurrence among other owners. My biggest concern, if the debris is a little larger, will the windshield prevent penetration into the driver and/or passenger compartment so as no one will be harmed due to a thin windshield?
