Yesterday our 2006 Envoy rear window exploded ! Glass everywhere inside and out. A large boom and thank God no one was hurt. After searching the internet we are not the only ones. Our Cadillac STS had also exploded and thought someone had hit it in a parking lot. We have two witnesses that were standing several cars away from our Envoy when they heard a large boom and glass going everywhere, no one did this! I have always loved our GM products and as retired from GM engineering I am now uncomfortable. Do I endanger my wife and grandchildren? There are to many of these rear glass exploding to not be related. Has anyone found the answer to this? Called our dealer and as they are understanding, GM takes no responsibility or help on this.

    It happens. Hard to say why. Usual advice is to file an insurance claim.

    I have a 2004 Envoy XL and yesterday we were working on the latch on the lift door which went well, then we started working on the button that opens the glass part and the window exploded onto the three of us standing there. We were stunned. Then we found this forum. Needless to say, I wonder if anyone has had any success with GMC assisting with replacement?
