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!
