2004 Vibe glass sunroof came off while driving. The glass struck the road and shattered. The consumer indicated that she wasn't aware that the glass panel had blown off until she heard the frame making noise. The tracks and frame were still attached to the vehicle. It appeared as though the adhesive gave way.

: the contact stated while driving on the highway at 60 mph, the vehicle's sunroof suddenly exploded and shattered everywhere. After hearing a rattling sound, the vehicle was pulled over immediately and was inspected by the contact. The shattered sunroof was not immediately noticed because the interior sunroof cover was closed. After inspecting the vehicle for four hours, the shattered sunroof was detected. After detailed inspectation of the sunroof the sunroof glass appeared dull and was sticking up. The vehicle was taken to an autoshop for replacement of the sunroof.

My Pontiac Vibe 2004 with sun roof package first of all the flooring in the car had mildewed and molded. The carpet was replaced after many times going back and forth to the dealership where I purchased at. The flooring in the car is wet once again not from moon roof this time but possible air conditioning tubing that may or may not be damaged. The car still has a very strong odor of mold in it that will not decrease. I am afraid that there may be harmful mold spores that may have already grown from the last time it was saturated with water due to manufacturer defect on drain tubing for moon roof. I purchased my new vehicle about 4 months ago and I have had to have the brakes looked at twice since they were warped, the leakage throughout my vehicle, and the frame needed to be realigned. I think this car is a lemon. The dealership siemanns of bridgeman Michigan did replace some parts on it but only after begging to do something about the cars standing water in vehicle started to mold.
