Exclamation Exploding Sunroof!

Just experienced a very bizarre and frightening incident yesterday while driving down the freeway in Victoria, AUstralia. Was doing about 100km/h in perfectly fine weather, when all of a sudden the panoramic sunroof on my 2013 A200 CDi just exploded! There were no trees or cars around so nothing would've hit it!

Started digging around online and can now see it is a common issue for some of the newer model Mercs with panoramic sunroofs.


My warranty expored less than a eyar ago but I am taking it into a Merc delaer on Friday to sort it all out, as it is definitely a manufacturer's fault and if it becomes this common they needto warn owners/do a recall. Also had my 4 month old baby in the car and we all had to jump out straght away as the glass just all collapsed. Very unsafe!

Will keep you all updated after I go to the dealer here in Victoria.

Damn, this is unfortunate. My ex girlfriend had something like that happen to her, not in benz tho but Mazda, but still I know it can scare you. It's manufacturer fault for sure, maybe there was some metal in the glass after production or something? Those things doesn't happen too often.
