My wife shut the drivers door of her 1 year old Up and with a crack like a rifle shot - the rear glass screen completely shattered. There had been a sharp frost. Has anyone else experienced this?

Exploding glass panels have been mentioned on the forum - although it may have been sunroofs. A quick forum search should find related threads. Have you ever poured boiling water on the vehicle's glass? I understand it weakens the molecular structure of the glass.

I think they solved this "problem" in the 2013 models. They put some kind of valves to release the air inside, when you shut the doors powerfully. Those valves was placed between spare wheel compartment and the rear bumper. So when the door is shut powerfully you can hear the noise like "release air quickly".
