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.

I was driving home from work today on the interstate and it sounded like a shotgun went off. My sunroof shattered. I looked up and there was a huge hole in the middle. It was about 68 degrees F, so it wasn't cold. I have a garmin dash cam so I went home and reviewed the video looking for an object coming from the sky or road just before the sound in the video. Nothing. I don't believe that anything hit the sunroof. I did not hit any potholes. The glass just exploded. I googled gti sunroof break and found someone in Canada with the same story. I think VW has an issue.
