problem #2

I am reporting my panoramic sunroof exploding on my 2014 kai sorrento sxl. I was driving on a very smooth interstate high way in the morning with no traffic around me. I was traveling at 70mph and it was morning about 60 degrees. I was on the phone with my wife and heard a loud sound (sounded like a gunshot) and then it started raining down glass around me. As I stated, I was on the road and there was not another vehicle around me. Once I managed to pull over to inspect what had happened I noticed that there was most of my sunroof inside the car and the rest of the glass that remained was facing upward which I thought was odd.

Approximately 5 seconds after the vehicle is initially placed into reverse gear, and while the vehicle is likely already in reverse motion, the backup camera goes black for 2-3 seconds (and consequently, the driver is blind) while the camera is apparently switching on the guide line overlays.
