    I just had the same thing happen to my 2015 Genesis! The section between the windshield and the sunroof just disintegrated around the edges. We were driving down the highway and heard the sound you normally hear when you drive through rocky dirt and you hear small rocks kicking up into your fender well, but it was on top of the car. We pulled over and saw that it was little bits of glass streaming back along the sunroof. I'm curious if the original poster had luck with Hyundai paying for the repair. I'm anticipating the dealer and Hyundai being coy about it and sticking me with the bill. Any thoughts on this?

    Interesting thread....

    I've heard a loud pop twice already. The first time I thought a rock hit the windshield. The second time sounded the same so I assumed it to be just something stressed in cold weather. Now I will see if it pertains to the piece of glass in question.

    I had the 6 inch wide glass panel crack but not shatter on my 2015 5.0 last month. Took it in to my dealer, Rick Case and they replaced the panel at no cost under warranty. Had about 40k miles on it.

    FYI, I started an earlier thread on this.

    Kind of makes you wonder how many more glass panels have cracked, but the owners are not on this forum - or owners that have not posted a similar experience on this forum
    Anyone else?

I took it to the dealer and they said they will call me. Anyone ever heard of this?

I set an appointment with Hyundai for tomorrow morning, but at first conversation they of course indicated it is not common and would not be covered under warranty without a claim filed with Hyundai Corporate. I am wondering what the outcome was of your situation, did they end up covering it for you?

    My problem was with the sun roof itself which exploded on a cold day, last winter, and showered glass inside the car while i was driving on the expressway. My dealer filed a claim with Hyundai for me and the sun roof was replaced under the warranty. The repair took two weeks because the replacement part had to come from Canada.

    I garage my cars, and my sunroof exploded after driving about 10 miles on a very cold day. I did not hear of any other exploding roofs all summer, and now that cold days are here again i see that other people are having similar issues. This leads me to think that the stress may be due to sudden changes in temperature, or at the very least cold weather. It seems that this problem also occurs on BMWs and other car makes which have cars with large sunroof surfaces.

    Would a 3M or an Xpel shield product prevent this?

    I doubt that would change the temperature differential issue in the cold, coming from a warmer garage, since these products are applied to the inside of the glass I assume. Based on posts above, the issue seems to be a "sudden" drop in temperature from a garaged car to a car being driven in cold weather.

    It might help with glass flying through the cabin though, if applied to the inside of the roof.

    Hate to refute your theory, but the front (movable) section of my sunroof just exploded today while driving on the interstate during a snow squall, and my car had been parked outside all night.

    I drove straight to Asheville Hyundai with snow falling on my head every time I had to stop for a traffic light.

    Forrest the service manager said it would be covered under warranty and gave me a loaner car to pick my kids from school. I have to say that their service department is 1000% better since he took over.

    I think the problem lies with the temperature difference between the warm air from the heater/defroster on the inside of the car and the 32 degree F. temps outside.

    I want to start a no sunroof revolution. NO MORE SUNROOFS! DOWN WITH SUNROOFS! I want to make it loud and clear to manufacturers that I will not purchase another car with one.
