Today, while driving home from work, I heard a loud crash immediately followed by the sound of wind and shifting glass over my head. My sunroof exploded for no perceptible reason 5 days before Christmas. FML

That seems to be occurring more frequently as of late on modern vehicles, especially those with panoramic sunroofs. Experts believe that it's due to thermal stress over the large glass area and fatigue from the torsion of the vehicle body. Still sucks for you though no matter the reason. Hopefully it's covered under your warranty if you have one.

That happened to our glass shower door in the middle of the night! Sounded like a gun went off, it absolutely exploded — shot glass EVERYWHERE, and out the door 10 feet away. Would have been so scary when driving!
