Consumer Reports investigates the issue of “Exploding Sunroofs” in which sunroofs on cars of all makes and models explode with little or no warning, putting the driver at great risk.
In this narrative audio documentary, a first from CR, hear from drivers whose sunroofs exploded as they drove along familiar roads in pristine conditions. Learn how they dealt with the shock and how their dealers and manufacturers dealt with them.
For the purpose of the podcast CR went into its testing lab and blew up a sunroof to provide listeners with the most realistic sense of what it sounds like when a sunroof explodes some 6 inches from your head.
Consumer Reports also provides insight about what is being done to address this issue and valuable information in the unlikely circumstance that this happens to you.
