In 2011 one quarter of a million sunroofs were recalled by the sunroof manufacturer Wabasto. The windows affected several car and truck models. While less than one percent of cars and trucks were affected by the recall, the situation still leaves questions over the safety of sunroofs open.
In the recall, the issue was the potential for the glass to become “debonded” with the frame. No injuries were reported in the recall, but the hazard is clear. The company filed a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to notify car owners of the recall. Car owners were advised to check for the Wabasto company name on the sunshade of their vehicle’s sunroof.
