Purchased new Road Side Window - Shattered sitting parked in my driveway???

Has anyone had this happen with a new window? Any chance there is fault in the product?

I bought this window from Andy at Inland and it's only been in for about 2 months.

While it's impossible for me to know if anything in my yard hit the window to cause it to crack, I really don't believe this to be the case. The last time I saw it in tact was Friday, and Sunday afternoon was in the position below.

This is a link to my post when the original window broke, in travel.

Fairly sure I followed all steps in replacing it well, and there did not seem to be any really tight fitment when installing the new replacement window.

What has your weather been like? I have known tempered replacement auto glass to go all of a sudden in full sun when the weather is cold. Sometimes you can just get a piece of glass with a manufacturing defect that is not noticeable until the glass fails. How do you prove it? Dunno.

Experience is what you get from not having it when you needed it.

Buy another one...

Unless there is a known problem with it, like some notorious car sunroofs, it is going to happen occasionally. I have never had it happen (knock on wood!)
