While driving home, without warning, my moon roof suddenly exploded.No warning, the noise was so loud that it deafened me for a few minutes.Glass was blown out of vechile, nothing fell into the vechile.

Car is brand new with only 3,000 miles. Nissian will not cover this under warranty saying that it was my fault. My concern is that this could have cause an accident. Does anyone know anyone who has had this problem?

This was on a 2011 Nissan Rogue.The incident happened on a cool day and they was no visable damage to the window prior to the explosion.My email address is Trooper5108@bllsouth.net

The rear window of my 2005 Nisan Pathfinder did the same thing.I left the car in a rural parking lot and when I returned the window had shattered.

I know it was a problem with the glass or glass installation as all the glass pieces were outside the car.I had to pay for a new window.

This just happened to me driving from Kelowna to Vancouver.No cars around me and nothing above and then BOOM!

Glass shatters and falls all around me and my passenger. Pretty scary.

Nissan Canada tell me that it is just something that can happen with glass and so it is not covered under warranty and there is no recall to address it.I find that unacceptable.

This just happened to me yesterday and I am completely in shock.Nothing hit the window and there were no cars anywhere near me.

I have called Nissan with no answer so far. Insurance is willing to put it under my comprehensive deductible which is only 250.00 vs.

my collision deductible which is 500.00.This makes it a little better but I think Nissan should have to pay for this to be fixed being it seems to be an issue with the car not the way I was driving or anything hitting the window to shatter it.

My front sunroof shattered on my 2015 rogue just sitting in my garage for no reason at all.I have owned it 5 months with 10000km on it.

The Nissan dealer in Edmonton will not cover it under any such warranty.

So I had to pay 1200.00 out of my pocket.I am one very passed out costumer.

I have a 2014 Nissan Altima SL.I was traveling on I65 on Friday, Jan 2016 when I heard a loud noise which sounded like a gunshot followed by the sound of air rushing out of the top of my car.

Pulled my interior shade back and discovered that my sunroof had exploded. There was a huge hole in the center with shattered fragments of glass around the edges.

Not covered by warranty because I had 41000 miles on my vehicle.However, my insurance did cover it but I had to pay $250 deductible.

Same thing happened on my 2011 murano.if you check the direction of the blast you will notice that remains of sunroof is blown up indicating that the roof was blown up from the inside.nissan knows they have a problem and don't want a recall.they paid for my roof and I paid for labor. No telling how many people have lost their lives because of this problem.the blast is like a shotgun blast.eifined

This happened today to my 2015 Altima. The dealer is making me file a claim. I told Allstate to investigate.
