I can not recall anyone posting this on the forum. Very bizarre. Maybe something had hit it before without anyone noticing and this took it to the breaking point.When our 2019 Ascent was parked in the garage I closed the driver door and the passenger side middle seat window literally exploded. Has anyone else had this happen?
I believe that glass window is tempered. Tempered glass can withstand abuse but it stresses under that abuse. It may not actually crack at the time of an impact but the stress is there in the glass and the next time something occurs to add on stress the glass sometimes will crack. The window must have been hit and you never knew it. I certainly do not inspect each window before I drive off. While I'm sure you did not slam the door hard, it was enough to add to the existing stress and crack the window. The edges of tempered glass is also the must vulnerable part.When our 2019 Ascent was parked in the garage I closed the driver door and the passenger side middle seat window literally exploded.

It's a "T" marked glass - tempered. I definitely got the wrong information from somewhere/someone at some time!That looks like tempered glass.
I was under the impression that all of our glass, with the exception of the third row, was laminated? I know there's been some back-and-forth about this.
That definitely looks like tempered glass and how it "shatters into million pieces."
