I purchased my 2009 nissan maxima sv 6 days ago. Today I started the car and warmed it up for 15 minutes before driving it,because it was chilly outside.
After 5 minutes of driving the car,it sounded like a cannon went off in my car. The most frightning thing I have ever experienced! Then I could hear glass falling. Thank God both shades were closed otherwise I could have been seriously cut up with all the flying glass.
I cant imagine with all the reports of exploding panoramic sunroofs Nissan or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)has not issued a recall. Please contact the NHTSA so they know these are not isolated cases. A nissan sentra exploded this morning right after mine did, the dealer reported . This is dangerous, I could have been cut by flying glass, or wrecked my car, this should not be happening.
I hear other makes and models with panoramic sunroofs are also exploding. They need to do a recall to protect consumers.
