Sunroof: Spend millions of dollars making a quiet, leakproof cabin and THEN CUT A FRACKING HOLE IN THE ROOF! The only car I ever had with a sunroof failed twice (in the open position.) I told the dealer (still under warranty) a third one will not get the trash bag fixit I did, and they could replace the interior, too, after a rainstorm..
Guess I'm lucky. I had a 2010 Malibu with a sunroof and didn't have a problem with it. The new '14 Malibu I bought for retirement doesn't have one so I maybe I dodged the bullet.

I agree. Pressure alone will not do this. The frame compressing the window (with a stress riser) would definitely do the trick. Simple data point: Look at the glass thru Polarized glasses. You can actually see the stress points as color changes in the glass. More color equals more stress. Amazing that the car companies can’t figure this out. We were taught about it 45 years ago in Engineering school (Go, GMI Bulldogs!)
TCE is the problem. Glass stable. Aluminum not. Bet the mechanical is aluminum stressing the glass.
I imagine the Engineers did but with Management directing the way they did what they were told. I might suggest an elastomeric seal between the glass and frame but there I go again. Guess us Engineer Geeks about wore out this problem.
CSU Vikings 40 years ago and an EE at that!

Along that line, in Michigan, more deer are killed by cars and disease, than all forms of hunting, combined.

Gendarmes are like State (country) Police on steroids.
They are no one to mess with.
Thier “sidearms” are SMG’s.

“Gay” is a choice, not a right.
In either case, abomination (or was that Obamination?) applies.

You are Governor of one of the most anti-gun states in the country and do nothing about fixing the problem?
That's because in HIS mind..there is no problem...he likes and wants the strictest gun laws in the nation here in NJ..to stay that way.
Politicians here know no other way. It will be an anti-gun, anti-second amendment state....until pigs fly. Dems..Repubs..makes no difference. They are all anti-second amendment.
He is sitting here trying to convince everybody that he is so pro gun...when that couldn't be further from the truth. If you read my other posts here...you can see how in HIS OWN WORDS....he is an anti-gunner.
If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck.....................
He wanted just ONE fact proving that he's anti-gun??!!
Read my posts of HIS quotes from the past...there are way more than just ONE fact.
If the guy asking him this question did some research and was armed with these facts and quotes.....Christi would have started crying and curled-up in the fetal position.
He signed 6 anti-gun laws tow years ago.
Actually the NJ gun laws expired three years ago and was not renewed by the Legislature due to failure to have enough votes. Yet its till be enforced and people are still going to jail. ASK HIM THAT.

From the headline, I thought they were shooting at the bicyclists.
Around here, they are so arrogant, we are tempted to look the other way and run them over…

Something about not getting the point of ILLEGAL?
Turnabout: If I were in Mexico illegally, I’d be in prison, family notwithstanding…
obama let a us marine languish in mexico jail after he was arrested for "accidentallty" entering mexislum with a gun. But he was white, obama said never mind, let the cracker suffer. El Chapo got released faster.
