There is an air leak in the rear driver side window. I am worried this is going to consistently get worse and have my window shatter at some point. After reading another complaint of the same problem I felt compelled to file one of my own. I reported this to my dealer and they have not looked into the problem. While in for service, another customer was compalining of the same problem. Every person that sits in the back seat notices a very distinct air leak in this window.

After buying car I noticed an air leak sound coming from the back drivers side window. Before I could bring it back to the dealership the back window completely shattered while driving home one night. The entire back seat was covered in glass. Luckily no one was in the back seat. Serious injury would have occurred. No evidence of an object breaking the window. Definitely a defect with the window.
