While driving on the freeway the glass sunroof/moonroof of my 2004 Toyota Sienna xle shattered. From the pattern of the glass breakage it looks like the glass broke due to interior cabin pressure. This is actually the second time this has occurred with this vehicle. We had been on the road for about 4 hours, we did not hit a pothole and we had not gone under an overpass. We heard a loud boom and then the sound of broken glass on the roof and dropping onto the sunshade. Luckily the sunshade was closed or my wife and kids would have been showered with broken glass. I called my insurance company and the glass was replaced by the dealer only part.

We were driving our 2003 Toyota Sienna xle limited down the street at approximately 25 mph when the moonroof shattered. The shattered was spontaneous and made a loud popping noise when it occurred. There was no impact from a rock, debris or object at or prior to impact. The moonroof/sunroof shattered into pieces. After research on-line, I see there was multiple complaints from owners of Toyota tacoma, scion and Sienna.

When driving on highway I-87 our moonroof in our minivan started to blow off. Luckily my husband was in the passenger seat and could hold the glass while I pull off. We immediately called Toyota of clifton park to tell them and took it there the following morning. They gave us two options, one full replacement at a cost of approx 1,340 + tax or to have them attempt to replace the glue and we would have to let it "cure" for a few days. We didn't drive it for approx 8 days and two days after driving it, it flew off again, this time I was alone an couldn't grab it and it blew out and hit another vehicle causing property damage to that car. We told Toyota originally that it had to be a manufacturing defect, you don't drive around and expect the windows to blow out of your car. They said because we were over our 50000 miles they wouldn't be responsible. Now in addition to them not taking responsibility for a defective moonroof, they also gave us bad advise on fixing it. They told us only one very expensive option and then one very cheap. Nothing in between was offered and after talking to our insurance adjuster, there was many other ways to fix the vehicle (only replace the glass, get one from a junk yard etc) but they didn't offer those less expensive repairs so of course we tried the glue. After metlife sent an engineer from an independent company did we find out they used an appoxy that isn't meant for fixing sunroof's or cars.

Sunroof ripped off drivers side of car after it was opened on highway. Sunroof remained attached on passenger side causing broken glass to shower into car and providing unsafe driving conditions at 75mph. Toyota refuses to acknowledge it is a factory defect even when one of their dealers has evidence that sunroof glass was never properly adhered to sunroof mounting brackets.
