Numerous reports are circulating that sunroofs are spontaneously exploding in SUVs and other automobiles that have glass overhead. A Consumer Reports investigation released in October of last year confirmed that sunroof explosions are happening every month across the country. The sudden surge of explosions has been occurring over the last five to ten years.
When your vehicle is found vandalized, and your windshield was broken, the automobile is not safe to drive.

Only 1 Auto Glass in St. Paul, Minnesota can help you navigate the process of securing your vehicle, filing a claim with your insurance agency, and temporarily fixing the glass, so the car is drivable while they work on a quick windshield replacement or repair.
When your car window doesn’t roll up or down, it’s often assumed that there is a mechanical failure such as a bad fuse or a motor that’s gone awry.

If your window doesn’t budge, then you can bring it to the Only 1 Auto Glass service center, and we can inspect the side window for damaged glass and then repair or replace it.
