On January 9, 2010 at approximately 2:00pm, while driving down a
street near our home, the third row rear passenger side window
just exploded and crumbled on our 2009 Ford Expedition. Nothing
impacted the window from inside or out. We have only had this new
vehicle for 4 months. We can only ascertain that the glass had a
defect. This happened yesterday (a Saturday) and we will be taking it to the dealer first thing tomorrow (Monday) morning, but anticipate they will not take responsibility after speaking to the service department.

mph on a rainy day water was leaking in from the back rear

rear window. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer on several
occasions, the dealer has adjusted the window and replaced the
seal once. The manufacture stated they have no fix for the
problem and they will not take the vehicle back. The failure
mileage was 8,900 and the current mileage was 22,681.

Driver's side window adjacent to third seat (cargo area) of 2000 Ford Expedition shattered for no apparent reason; window was open for ventilation per design (tempered glass window pivots open about 3" via electric actuator). Speed was 65 mph under calm conditions, smooth road surface. I initially believed I had suffered a complete left/rear tire failure as there was a very loud "bang" and a large amount of debris hurled into adjacent traffic lane. Approximately 1/4 of the volume of shattered glass was hurled into the passenger compartment, primarily in the third row. Fortunately I was alone in the vehicle; anyone in third row would have, at a minimum, suffered lacerations and likely eye injury.

I turned the corner and the whole back window shattered. I stopped right away and looked around. Most of the glass had shattered outside the Expedition. There was no rock or anything else that hit it. As a matter of fact, the corner I turned at, there was a metro police officer there because there was an accident in the middle there. My children where scared and crying but there was no glass on them. The next morning I took the 2003 Ford Expedition down to friendly Ford and they said it is not covered.

The rear window shattered without warning.

The driver side window blew out.
Had vehicle parked when rear window exploded for no reason. Had no warning of problems.
Rear window "exploded" outwards without warning. It was not hit, the weather was cool. The blowout pattern sent 99% of the glass into the street a distance of 30 feet or more. Very little glass was inside the car. I have heard of other incidents of this happening in the Expedition/navigator models. Is this in fact a model specific or design problem.

After traveling 10 miles and parked vehicle, within 2-3 minutes heard a loud noise and found rear windows shattered glass both in / out of vehicle, no known reason could be found for the incident. Dealer notified.
Tint windows reflect all lights coming in, and this impairs drivers visibility of anything that lights up items, even a shiny book in the seat. Smoke tint is fine, but reflective type tint is a safety problem.
While driving the rear window shattered and collapsed inside the vehicle.
On two occasions the window will not go up / down.
Truck was parked and the rear window blew out. There was no one in the truck and the truck had not been started up. When the owner came out that when he noticed that the rear window had exploded.

After parking the vehicle, the rear window shattered, cause unknown.
