Exploding sunroofs are a thing. The investigation to understand why has dragged on for half a decade.

WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — You're cruising down the highway, enjoying the fresh air and blue sky view you get with a sunroof. Suddenly it explodes and rains glass down on your head.

It sounds like a freak accident. But a Circa investigation found hundreds of complaints about sunroof explosions and a government investigation that's dragged on almost half a decade.

The explosion scenario is something Chris Pelesky has experienced first-hand. While on his daily commute in Maryland in 2016, he says his sunroof spontaneously shattered.

He explained, "It was literally like a shotgun. When something happens when you’re going 65 mph like that, wow!"

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

I know someone that had that happen to the back glass of her BMW -- twice.
