Well today while driving down the highway without warning my drivers side window decided to explode for no apparent reason. There was no traffic passing me or passing by in the oncoming lane. The only other vehicle was another car behind me about 75ft or so. Anyone else had this happen please share.

My moms CRV rear hatch window exploded while she was backing up her driveway to the garage couple years ago. Long story short guy who replaced it does a lot of business and says he replaces on average 2 windows a week (either sides or rears) that spontaneous shatter. Says he sees it across all manufacturers.

It may have been compromised at some point and finally let go.. I doubt it would be a manufacturing defect on a 4 to 5 year old window. Especially in the climate where you live with drastic temp fluctuations throughout the year. If it was a defect, I'd think it would've blown out sooner.
