Complaint - Unknown Or Other

IN FEB 2015 AFTER OWNING THE CAR FOR A FEW MONTHS, THE SUNROOF EXPLODED ON THE FREEWAY AT A SPEED OF 60 MPH. THE BREAK WAS DIRECTED UP TO THE OUTSIDE (NOT DOWN AS IF SOMETHING STRUCK THE WINDOW). THE SIDE WINDOWS WERE CRACKED SO IT WAS NOT AN ISSUE OF THE HEAT/COLD CHANGE OR TOO MUCH CABIN PRESSURE. NOW AUG 2016, THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. THIS TIME TOYOTA IS REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH THE SUNROOF. IN BOTH INSTANCES, THE SOUND WAS LOUD LIKE A SHOTGUN AND EXTREMELY STARTLING. GLASS COULD HAVE RAINED DOWN ON ME OR I COULD HAVE BEEN STARTLED CAUSING AN ACCIDENT. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THE SUNROOF CAN BREAK TWICE IN THE SAME MANNER WITHIN 1 1/2 YRS OWNING THE CAR. THIS SEEMS LIKE A DANGEROUS ISSUE AND AM CONCERNED THAT IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. I HAVE PICTURES BUT AM UNABLE TO LOAD THEM. I ALSO HAVE A VIDEO CAMERA IN MY CAR TO SHOW THAT THERE WERE NO OTHER CARS NEAR ME AT THE TIME THIS HAPPENED.
