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.

2005 Volvo S40. Consumer writes in regards to defective sun roof drainage that lead to vehicle electrical damage. The consumer noticed water leaking in the vehicle and soaking the floor mats behind the driver's seat. Years later, the dealer informed the consumer there was known defect in the sunroof drains, that caused them to become clogged and flood the floor, where electrical components were stored. Although, the drainage clogs could be cleared, it would only be a temporary fix due to the defect, and the dealer informed the consumer the electrical system was likely already damaged from all the leaking and it would cost $5,000 to fix. The consumer stated over the years, he noticed relatively minor problems due to the lasting water damage, such as reduced and inconsistent performance, and random error messages appearing and disappearing.

I was driving down the highway when there was a loud boom in my car that sounded like a gunshot. Glass then came down on and around me in my car. I pulled over as quickly as possible. It looks like the glass from my sunroof came up and out of my car. It did not appear as if anything hit it. There is a large gaping hole in my sunroof.
