RE: ML sun/moon roof explosion
There was an article on a British consumer TV show about this kind of problem during last year; apparently there's a tendency for this to happen on Smart cars (which as we know ar MB 'group' at least. On the Smarts it's the rear window, which is a structural part of the tailgate and is therefore opened, closed, slammed, whatever: nonetheless, it would always be while the tailgate is closed and people are minding their own business.
The programme claimed that this was a 'bad glass batch' problem and that MBUK (aka Smart) were putting together a recall/replace operation.
