The contact owns a 2004 Toyota Corolla. While the vehicle was at the dealer for an oil change, the technician attempted to roll down the front driver's side window and it shattered. The contact had to repair the failure at his own expense. After the repair was made, the dealer informed him of NHTSA campaign id number 08V162000 (visibility:glass, side/rear). The contact is currently seeking reimbursement for the repair costs and is experiencing this failure with all of the power windows. The failure mileage was 48,400.

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,486 miles
I was driving a Toyota 2004 Corolla on the highway @ 60 mph. All the car windows were open. There were no other cars/trucks near the car. I pushed the button to close the windows. The driver side window went up to approx. 6" from the top of the window and stopped. I pushed the button to turn it down. The window returned down. I again pushed the button to close the window. As the window was raised to apprrox 6" from the top, the glass exploded. I drove directly to the Toyota dealer who said sometimes this happens and was not able to give a reason for the occurrence. The window was replaced. I am afraid to touch the window as when the glass exploded, my hand was cut, some of the glass was in my lap. I was wearing sunglasses which I think provided some protection. When I saw the back of the car there was glass on the floor and back seat. Fortunately, I didn't panic when the glass exploded. I am frightened to think of the serious consequences if I did. Are there any reasons for this type of occurrence" there wasn't any unusual sound when I pushed the window buttons. Is there a problem w the Toyota 2004 Corolla" thank you for your help.
