2005 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

I was driving on the expressway with my children in the car, I was going the normal speed limit of 60 mph on this road. All of a sudden, I looked up and the glass to my sunroof flew off. I never had a previous issue with this sunroof and there was nothing loose at the time of the incident. I was so scared that the glass would hit someones car but it did not. I am still baffled by the whole experience. There has to be a manufacturer's defect because glass does not come off a vehicle.

Have had multiple trips to the dealer for sunroof issues. Issues have been either the sunroof stops working all together, and when opened it will not close. The sunroof tries to close, but then re-opens. This issue has been ongoing since I purchased the vehicle in 2005.

The contact owns a 2005 Cadillac Srx. The contact stated while driving at 60-65 mph the sun roof collapsed, causing six people to be injured in the vehicle. Luckily this did not cause an accident. The manufacturer was investigating this to see if it was a manufacturing defect. IE05-052.pco PE05-052.pco

Large sunroof on my 2005 Cadillac Srx inexplicitly shattered and caved into vehicle while travelling in light traffic. There is no evidence of foreign object causing this, nor was there the sound of impact you would expect necessary to take out a large piece of glass like this. Can't get GM to consider that this may be an equipment failure. Fortunately, the sunshade was closed or glass would have fallen on occupants GM isn't forthcoming with information about this unique roof or even who manufactures it. This is a $3,500 repair that GM won't cover or provide details of other potential incidents. IE05-052.pco PE05-052
