I see, have you read theseI've seen quite a few busted sunroofs in subarus, from catching rocks thrown by vehicles in front.
Just last night, my 2017 Subaru's Outback sunroof shattered out of nowhere. No rocks flying, minimal traffic. Scared the you know what out of me. I'm calling Subaru today.Out outback 2017 sunroof shattered on a rainy 50F day. I have open a case with Subaru for replacement under warranty. Has anyone gone through similar situation.
Not anymore as I recently learned here. The Outback front door windows are laminated now as well. So that little tool for breaking your way out of the car if trapped under water isn't so useful any more. If you follow your GPS directions and drive into a lake you better jump into the back seat and break one of those windows instead.On cars, all of the glass except for the windshield is tempered; The windshield is laminated (two layers of glass with a plastic layer in the middle).
What's funny is the difference in glass and how it responds to impacts.Glass can shatter like that if exposed to stresses in the frame... I wonder if we will be seeing more of this with the giant moonroof pieces of glass.
remember this when first starting to read threads here on the gen5 section:We JUST bought a 2018 Outback with moon roof yesterday. Are the ones that shatter the front unit or the available rear unit? I'd be really disappointed if my wife called me one day to tell me this happened to her while going down the road, especially if we had any of our dogs with us. They like to chew on any and everything they can get their mouths on.
