The temperature was about 50 degrees and sunny I had just left church services so the car had been sitting out in the parking lot for about 4 hours. I was in the car doing about 40 mph and I heard a pop-like that of a champagne bottle- and what sounded like sand on the floor. I looked around to make sure a bug or reptile hadn't gotten into my car. I didn't think anything about it. This morning 12/3/2014 temperature around 43 degrees and noticed that my glass wind deflector what shattered around the edges. I've never had any issues with the car and I live in a gate community so I didn't think that it was an act of vandalism. I spent 3 years in Alaska and I know what frozen glass could do if exposed to direct extreme heat. This was not the case. I am looking into getting it replaced but judging from the forums and this site doesn't seem like Toyota will cover my 2007 Scion Tc which I think is a very dishonorable thing to do. Many Tc owners are having a time with vehicles that have incurred this issue that they didn't cause and couldn't prevent.

Went to open driver side door when I heard a popping sound. Turned to see the hatchback glass crack and spider with a collapse in the center of the window. Temperature was 57 degrees at 7 pm. Defrost, A/C and heating were not being used at the time. No projectiles or bullets were found inside car. Crack started at top left corner, made its way across the top of the hatch and then crack down into the center of window. No cracks or chips had been noticeable to myself or others. Car was purchased mid August and has been garaged since date of purchase. Have found similar instances on website forums with other Toyota models as well as Scion Tc.
