driving vehicle, heard crackling noise from rear compartment, smelled smoke, power sun roof opened by itself, entire vehicle filled with smoke, fire observed behind back seat, pulled over and ran from vehicle, car fully erupted in flames, entire inside of car was fully consumed. contacted acura and they sent a district mgr from american honda motor co. to examine vehicle and take pictures. i was told that i would hear something in a few days. a month has went by and the customer service department indicated that i would be hearing from someone but they do not know when or who. the person assigned case was a david hombre,1-800-382-2238. he indicated that if i wanted any more information to have my lawyer contact their l&a dept. no phone# just an address. i believe this is a very serious problem. while i was able to get out of car, i have two small children and if i had to have removed them from rear restraints i am not sure there would have been enough time prior to car fully erupting. it happened very quickly with only a minutes warning at best. very dangerous!!

Safety incident date:
Oct 26, 2012
Location:
Springfield, MO

a driver and one passenger were traveling down an interstate highway at approx. 70 mph. all windows were closed, the sunroof and sunroof shade were closed. approx. outside temperature was 45 degrees fahrenheit, a sunny but cold day, and the inside vehicle temperature was approx. 70 degrees fahrenheit. out of nowhere, a loud pop (like a gunshot) was heard. immediately following, there was the faint sound of outside air coming from the sunroof. the driver opened the sunroof shade just enough to immediately see that the entire sunroof glass was shattered (still intact, but completely shattered). within three minutes when a safe place was reached, the vehicle was pulled over to examine from outside. driver got out of the car, and saw that the glass sunroof was buckled upwards (as though it had popped from the inside). the glass was not broken in any pattern which indicated an object from outside the vehicle had hit it. there was no evidence anywhere else on the roof of the vehicle of any incident. it was clear that the glass had popped, potentially due to incorrect pressure inside the vehicle, from the inside out. these factors lead us to believe the incident is a vehicle safety issue, at the fault of the manufacturer. *tr

i was driving my new car acura tl sh awd (6 days old) on the freeway traveling at approximately 60 mph on a sunny day out in the open with no cars in front or along side me, and i heard what sounded like a gun shot. i realized that my sunroof had exploded. i had the sun shade open and a few pieces of glass were on me and the passenger seat. there were also a few pieces in the passenger seat, on me and in the back seat, but most of the glass was blown upward and out of the car. there were nicks in the paint, in two lines on the roof and on the trunk. some of the pieces inside the car were very small, but some were 3" to 4" in length. acura says it must have been a rock and will not cover it under warranty. some of the remaining glass in the sunroof (approximately 15%) was pointed in an upward direction. there is no evidence to suggest a rock hit it. this is my fifth acura and probably my last. *tr
