I closed the rear glass window hatch and the glass exploded. The shattered glass caused cuts and abrasions on my exposed skin. My SUV was parked in my driveway at the time. The security cameras at my home taped the incident as it occurred.

My rear lift gate does not lock with or without the key fob nor with the power door lock button. There is no manual way to lock my doors it seems to be a poor design and a safety factor. My wife is afraid to drive because anyone can open the lift gate and rob her or even myself.

While driving the car on the highway it suddenly started to smoke. We had pulled over to see what was going on and once we got out of the car to see the car was already on fire under the hood by the passengers side. The flames were already coming out of under the car by the front passengers side tire. Once we saw the fire we ran away from the car, but we have no idea why the fire started in the first place since we had driven it hours before and farther then where we were when the fire had occurred.
