Sunroof exploded - driving vehicle around 60mph on misty rainy overcast day. All of a sudden sunroof shatters (no car around for rock or pebble projection).
I was driving down the highway and my moonroof suddenly shattered. I had taken a left hand turn onto the highway and shortly after i reached the 55 mph speed limit i heard a loud noise and didn? T know what happened at first, then i heard more crackling from above and figured it was the moonroof. Luckily i had the shade closed and there were no other vehicles around me at the time. Since there were no other vehicles around and i wasn? T driving under an overpass, it seems to me this happened spontaneously vs something like a rock hitting the moonroof.
I was driving my car on an expressway in mild rain and stopped at a red light when i heard a loud bang. I was concerned and pulled in immediately into a gas station. The moonroof shade was open. I got out of the car and inspected around but didnot see anything noticeable. As i got into the car to drive, i noticed a piece of glass falling. That is when i looked up and to my utter dismay saw that the front part of the panoramic moon roof was totally shattered. That's what caused the loud bang. I pulled the moon roof shade and returned home immediately. After reaching home, i checked the roof to find a large part of the roof was missing and the sides cracked. I had the car towed to the dealership. I am 100% sure that nothing hit my car. This is a security hazard and need to be taken seriously by acura/honda. To put things into perspective, this car was bought 6 months ago brand new and has just 3500 miles on it. Not good.
Have had this car a year. Withing 6 months shifter would not shift back to park and couldnt turn car off. Dealer found acorns jammed in transmission somewhere felt to be due to squirrels or other rodents. This month emissons light came on. Found fuel line leaking due to animals chewing on it. Not covered under warranty. $1100 to fix. I feel the engine housing is not well sealed allowing this to happen have never had this issue with any other cars which have been parked in same place for long periods of time. Feel it should be fixed under warranty to prevent it from happening again. Vehicle sits outside driven twice a week.
