 Description of the problemThe sunroof for my 2017 mercedes e300 just spontaneously shattered while driving. I was driving straight ahead around 50 mph on a highway on a rainy day, with no one immediately in front of me when i hear a loud noise that startled me. I didn't know what had happened until i heard wind noise from outside and realized the sunroof had shattered. Once i was able to safely pull over, i realized that the there was a huge hole in my sunroof and it seemed to have originate from inside, as the glass was pushed outward. With no cars in front of me, driving on a stretch of highway with no overpass, i suspect that the glass or car had a defect and shattered on its own. It was a scary incident that could have been much worse. Fortunately, no one was injured. The cause for the incident is unknown since there were no rocks or other foreign object that was near that could have specifically hit the sunroof with doing no other damage to the vehicle.
