Your problem sounds slightly different than the other windshield reports and I thought the whole idea of the laminate screens was that they DIDN"T shatter the way you describe. If you weren't hit by something travelling at much more than usual velocity, it certainly suggests a very deficient component.

The windshield issue in general is a worrying one and it's disappointing that Honda seem to have remained so silent on the subject. It's entirely possible that some of the reported problems may be due more to driving habits than construction quality or materials, but if even a few of the reported broken windshields have genuinely unaccounted reasons, the manufacturer should be taking this seriously. They seem not to be.

I can't help but hope that the reason the windshields are on backorder is that the manufacturer is re-tooling for better quality so that the units in the future are less prone to this problem. Sadly I suspect it's more as you suggest - there are so many broken ones that there are none left for wider supply. One way or another, it shouldn't take someone ricxh enough to hire a lawyer to get Honda to deal with what is a significant safety issue.
