    Default Civic 2007 Windscreen Quality?

    Yesterday afternoon this Civic was parked inside with no direct exposure to heat or anythin that could hit the car.. the windows were also down.. all of a sudden there was a shatter sound n the rear windscreen was smashed.. it started in the middle n within half an hour the whole screen was full of split webs! Has this happened to anyone of you??

    Although we have claimed it in insurance, however, just wondering if this reflects the poor quality of glass! cause when the driver took the car to honda classic there was 2 more new civics with windscreens shattered!

    i mean there could be a scientific explanation of this phenomenon (not apparant though as the cabin was not pressurized, there was no sudden temperature change ,etc) however im more inclined to consider it a quality issue! cause i ve seen many ppl splashing cold water on hot windscreens in summers n they just dont shatter! Shouldn't it be taken up with Honda for coverage under warranty?

    I recall another post by a PW fellow whose tyre was burst on hitting eye cats in LHR!

    could it just be a VERY microscopic crack in the glass that got introduced to the laws of 'heat conduction'? Or is this only related to fitting?

    Amir's explanations makes sense! the same was also asserted by our american technical consultant whoz visiting us these days! malinstallation! strain since it was fitted! i wonder whats the QC at Honda?

    had it not been the case with automated/ robotic assembly lines?

    The windscreen shattering could probably be Honda's fault but a tyre bursting, not really. They don't make the tires which go on the car; they just install them. If one burst it was probably because of under inflation or over inflation; maybe the alignment was bad and it caused improper wear, I've seen this happen in all three cases, blaming it on Honda is improper.

    @vicky786:

    first it was power windows
    This happened in other countries too, not just Pakistan, it was a general issue with 8th generation Civics that rolled out before July 2007. Honda replaced the rails under warranty within a day (as it happened to me). There was a service bulletin / recall for it.

    then meter give misleading count
    Never heard of that one?

    Cylestine! no doubt Honda is much better in QC than others.. blaming them for tyres may be unreasonable however windscreen installation might be a quality issue if no other scientific reason holds ground!

    poor quality issue & nothing else... the only thing im azmazed to know too many quality issues by honda (coming into the light)... i hear faulty power windows, trailing to the left because distance of the tyres of two sides is not equal :s, poor paint job in the lower parts of the body (underneath the doors) & now this..

    quality of local cars sux big time... its not just suzuki or toyota... honda also has got issues but only aret discussed as much as the others
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron
