Mercedes has been in the news recently, after several owners are complaining that their sunroofs have... exploded. Miraculously, this is not the first time this has happened to a car.

The plaintiff in this lawsuit claims that his sister was driving his Mercedes SUV, in normal, calm weather. She was travelling 55mph (88kph) when all of a sudden, she heard a loud bang, and pulled over, only to find the panoramic sunroof... all over the back seat.

Sunroofs are very delicate, and require precise engineering to remain in one piece. Mercedes has failed to deliver a safe sunroof in this respect, and now more people are speaking out about their sunroof terrors. Aside from being dangerous, it can distract the driver, possibly even causing a crash.

Mercedes however, has not issued a recall, and are not warning owners about this issue. Mercedes has offered sums of money as a peace offering so owners won't sue, but clearly this hasn't worked. These sunroofs are expensive, costing anywhere from $2,000 to $9,000.

  • We had a sunroof in the Mazda and it didn’t blow. The one on the Toyota is good, but the one on the Volvo had a big crack because a brick fell on to it

  • BMW's have had similar exploding sunroof issues before.

    Yet another example of German engineering!

    Seriously, German cars are turning into real pieces of crap.

    They have lost their plot long time ago, and are turning into real garbage.
