General Motors management says the sunroofs on their Chevrolet Cruze 2015-14 and Buick Regal 2015 may break, according Cars.com. Several owners complained that their sunroofs shattered to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The report says, “the glass sunroof panel can break. Dealers will inspect the sunroof glass panel and replace it if necessary.”
“While driving the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze on the highway at 68 mph, the sunroof glass shattered causing small shards of glass to fall into my face and clothing, as well as outside the top of the vehicle,” one owner reported to NHTSA.
“There was no chance of road debris hitting the closed sunroof glass, nor was there an overpass from which anything could have fallen off of to make an impact. The glass exploded and spider-webbed the entire sunroof,” the owner said.
An owner of a 2015 Buick Regal reported to NHTSA, “The sunroof exploded as I was driving down the road. I heard a very large pop and I looked under the cover of the sunroof and there was a large hole right in the middle. Glass fell through when I opened up the cover. Nothing hit it. There were no cracks in it.”
GM officials had not yet responded to a request for comment at press time.
