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.

While driving on interstate 4 orlando to tampa, Florida going 65 mph the passenger side rear back window exploded without being struck by a foreign object. Luckily my 7 year old wasn't severely injured by the tiny glass fragments. So thankful and or lucky we didn't crash our vehicle. Seems others having this problem with different Toyota models too...

Ac compressor failed. Defog system uses the ac system to blend the air to control fog buildup on inside of windshield. This can be very frightening especially on rainy days. Ac system is not only a convenient option it's necessary for the correct operation of the defog system.

I discovered my windshield was cracked recently. The length of the crack when discovered was approximately 2 1/2 inches. The crack is now approximately 12 inches long and causes visibility problems when the sun hits it (blinding reflections). I am concerned the windshield is no longer stable or safe. There is no visible rock chip, there is no other sign of injury to the windshield, and the vehicle has never been in an accident. Because the damage appears to be due to poor windshield quality (defective materials) and because other Toyota Sienna owners have experienced the same problem, I believe Toyota is responsible for the cost of replacement of the defective windshield: A new windshield plus the cost of labor plus the cost of disposal of the defective windshield plus warranty on the new windshield.

The left sliding-door side window in our 2005 Toyota Sienna spontaneously exploded while driving at about 45mph on a day where the temperature was in the 60S. The window was not struck by any object, it just exploded. The window was not in the process of lowering or raising at the time.
