Are you aware of an increasing incidence of car sunshine

Resolved Question:

Are you aware of an increasing incidence of car sunshine roofs exploding? It has happened recently on my new (Jan 17) Honda HRV and Honda are refusing to bear the cost of repair under warranty, citing their belief that I was hit by a stone or external force. There was no evidence to support this assumption and I believe the breakage occurred as a result of product failure. I'm told this is happening right across the industry. Do you have any advice?

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Hi there,

Were you moving at the time, if so what speed?

If not, where there other vehicles around at the time?
