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.

On a sunny hot day vehicle was parked for approx 20 outside. Entered the vehicle once no mishap. Upon second entry "3 minutes apart" when door was closed rear window just fell apart. I found glass on the ground outside of the vehicle and the remaining glass in the vehicle. What appears to have happen is the rear window exploded. Not aware of any prior damage to the window. Toyota was given two attempts to review the grievance on each occasion claiming owner fault or responsibility.
