THE SUNROOF OF MY 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia EXPLODED WHILE WE WERE DRIVING ON I95 IN CONNECTICUT. THERE WERE NO OVERHEAD TREES, OVERPASSES OR CAR AHEAD THAT COULD HAVE KICKED UP ROAD DEBRIS. THE TEMPERATURE WAS AROUND 90 AND HUMID WITH NO CHASE OF RAIN OR HAIL. THE SUNROOF MADE A LOUD BANG AND SHOWERED EVERYONE IN THE CAR WITH GLASS, IT ALSO SHOWERED AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE CAR FOLLOWING ME. THE EXACT CONDITIONS WERE DRIVING SOUTHBOUND ON I95 AT 65MPH
I purchased my car in jan. 2020. On june 21, 2020, i awoke to my alarm going off. I tried to use my key fob to turn that alarm off and it did. Not work. The alarm stopped and i had to use the hard key to enter my car. The car would not start and i had to get a jump from aaa. The car was new with less than 3000 miles on it. I took it to the dealer to for a diagnostic and they kept it for 5 days. They had to replace the bcm. The bcm was listed as problem in prior year versions of this vehicle. This appears to be a continuing problem with this vehicle. The vehicle was parked and was not being disturbed when the alarm went off.
Service electronic throttle control and check engine warning lights came on. Car died in the middle of the road and took severally attempt to restart car.
21. 000 miles may 2 2020 while exiting my neighborhood, electronics failed again and the car would not accelerate anymore; i was stuck in the middle of a heavily trafficked us highway, with the risk to be hit by other cars. The car went into the normal drive mode and i was not able to switch to economic or dynamic driving mode anymore, car would not run over 40mph. All kind of warnings started showing up on the dashboard. I had to stop/start the car a few times, and it resumed functioning. Current major failure-30/05/2020, cannot say the car mileage because the dashboard screen totally blacked out, 2020. All customized controls settings went back on factory settings and the center dashboard on the driver side is completely blacked out. Car is blocked in normal driving mode without the possibility to switch to dynamic or economic mode. Esc warning is activated on the dashboard.
This car has been in the service department more than 8 times with cracked radiator, electrical problems and recalls. It has come to a dead stop on major highway and almost killed us
