Here’s something interesting most people never think about: sunroofs can shatter.

Mobile auto glass service is available in Blaine and the Twin Cities metro region.
In the news recently, in Cranbrook, B.C. (Canada), a young couple and their kids were driving along in their Hyundai Sante Fe Sport when all of the sudden, out of the blue, the sunroof “exploded.” They had their roof shield closed, which protected them from getting injured, but they were still shaken up, as you could imagine. Shards of glass ended up in the backseat.
You’d assume a rock hit the sunroof’s glass, right? Maybe it did or maybe it didn’t. The couple doesn’t think a rock hit their sunroof, and they’ve since discovered that other people have had exploding Sante Fe sunroofs in Canada, as well as throughout North America.
Hyundai has said that their sunroof on the Sante Fe is made of tempered glass, designed to break into small pieces upon impact or fracture.
The company hasn’t issued a recall, though Sante Fe owners are left wondering if it will happen to them, and if it will lead to injuries or even deaths.
Auto experts think sunroofs can shatter for a number of reasons, including the glass being too big for the frame, low quality glass, or the obvious: a rock hitting the sunroof.
