The driver side window (main door) exploded on me today while traveling on a rural stretch of a major interstate. This is more than a little scary at 65+ miles an hour.
The outside temp was approx 72. The inside just a little cooler as I was running vented outside air. All other windows were closed. The only thing I can think of is a build up of pressure - but the force seemed to be directed inward (could be outside air pushing) and the force of the implosion went glass flying to the passenger side of the car.

A car was passing me at the time. I kept my wits about me long enough to get a look at the car and noted that its windows were up (thinking someone might have thrown something).

Being Sunday, my dealer was closed and no one answering at the 800-Honda number.
I'll be calling both tomorrow and will update this thread.
