Cool similar problem

I have a 2003 laguna tourer, about 6 months ago at about 5 o'clock in the morning there was an almight bang outside my house. I ran out to find the back screen was smashed. I phoned the police as I heard a car driving away. Then to my dismay I found out that nothing had touched the car - the screen had just exploded. Autoglass informed me that it was a common problem with them!! Not good is it. Touch wood, the replacement seems fine - time will tell.

Spoke to local dealer FISHBROTHERS Swindon who said as its a 52 car, if it was going to break it would have done by now therefore no responsibility lies with Renault.

Looks like having to get autoglass to do it on my insurance later today but have spoken to Renault UK who are "looking into it"!

Has anyone else had experience of this happening? The window was undamaged! Last time I shut the lift up window was 4 days ago!

I am DISGUSTED by Renault - or rather at this time the dealer! NO OTHER car i've owned has done this!
