2014 BMW X1 Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 252016


  • 20,000 miles


While driving the 2014 BMW X1 at highway speeds (60mph) the front glass panel of the panoramic sunroof spontaneously exploded. The explosion caused a shocking boom, and some small fragments of tempered glass fell into the passenger compartment of the car, some fragments blew into the vehicle behind us and some fragments remained shattered in-place. When able to pull over and inspect, the glass seemed to shatter outward, and no object that may have impacted the glass could be found. The manufacturer denies responsibility for the spontaneous breakage, though the service personnel at the dealership said they have seen this happen in several other instances.

This car was parked in my sunny driveway, ambient temp ~85 degrees F. several hours later, I returned to drive it and found the rear glass over the hatch trunk lid broken into thousands of equal parts, but all in place with no indentation or evidence of anything having impacted the glass, such as a limb, rock, baseball, etc. When I touched the glass, it crumbled into the storage area and on the pavement. The autoglass repair place I took it to opined that this has occurred in various vehicles as a result of heat building up inside. If so, this is a serious manufacturing and design defect
