problem #3

Glass moonroof shattered while on a ski trip to Canada. We were exiting a gas station at less than 5 mph. There was nothing overhead that might have dropped on the car. Thought at the time that it might be due to extreme cold. Now reading that this has occurred to many people in many circumstances.

The contact owns a 2013 Acura Rdx. The contact stated that the driver side window was loose. While driving approximately 35 to 50 mph, the driver side window glass clicked and moved back and forth. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but there was no diagnosis. The window was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 15,000.

The brand new car was on fire by itself on October 30, 2012. It was after the hurricane sandy. My family woke up because of smelling gas from downstairs which was the attached garage to the kitchen. When my husband opened the kitchen door to the garage, he couldn't see anything but smokes. We called 911 and found out there was fire inside of the car. The fire started internally and spread out to the garage. There was sign of water that got into the garage. However, when fire fighter opened the garage door, there was no water in the garage. The front of the car was fine. The driver's seat area and the Navigator area was totally melted down. There was no power in our town since October 29, 2012. The car windows(side and the top) were open by itself. I do not understand how the car caused fire by itself. There were thousands of cars but I did not hear the flood caused the fire which was parked inside of the garage. The car was brand new and had a temperate plate. There is no smoker in my family.
