I'm sure the dealer used this opportunity to fleece the insurance company as they determined the glass was a result of a stone chip.  The cost of the repair supposedly including the removal of the entire sunroof mechanism because glass had fouled the tracks and needed to be replaced.  The interior of the vehicle was covered in glass and had to be disassembled to be cleaned of glass.  Sounds like a great opportunity to run up an insurance claim.  I can't stress how much glass covered the interior and every nook and cranny.  Glad you had a more rewarding experience.

I'm sorry, I'm no Erin Brochovich. I've moved on with German brand.  I've seen media studies on this phenomenon.  Vehicle manufacturers acknowledge this happens but do not take any responsibility. I take solace in the fact no one was hurt.

Well I hope the German brand you have now isn't Mercedes, BMW or VW/Audi!  If so, then your troubles are just beginning.  The vehicles I've owned that were manufactured by Toyota have been infinitely more reliable and of higher quality than the German vehicles I've owned.  My last Mercedes, purchased new, was on its 3rd engine when I finally dumped it and bought a new Lexus LS.

As I stated much earlier in this thread.  This is a forum for Lexus Lovers not Lexus owners.  I'm good with that.  Be well my friend!

If you look closely to the window sticker on the Lexus when you go car shopping, you will see a white sticker mostly on the rear passenger side window behind the driver's sit and it states as follows:

"This vehicle's parts are 55% USA/Canadian and 35% Japanese".

I dont know where the other 10% is lost, however 55% of the car is equipped with crappy American parts made for Lexus. And only 35% of it is actually Japanese which is, The Engine. The transmission, and probably the ECM, BCM, and TCM. 

* ECM = Engine Control Module

** BCM = Body Control Module

*** TCM = Transmiddion Control module
