I WAS DRIVING TO THE GYM ABOUT 10 MINUTES FROM MY HOUSE. WHEN I GOT THERE, I PUT MY TRUCK IN PARK, TURNED IT OFF, GATHERED MY THINGS, AND THEN HEARD THIS CRAZY LOUD POPPING/CRACKING NOISE. THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW JUST SHATTERED!!! I HAVE A 2011 F-150 WITH A REAR WINDOW DEFROSTER AND POWER SLIDING REAR WINDOW. THIS IS THE FIRST WINTER I HAVE LIVED SOMEWHERE COLD AND USED THAT REAR DEFROSTER, WHICH PER SEARCHING ONLINE FOR ANSWERS, APPEARS TO BE THE CULPRIT. I ALSO TALKED TO A FEW GLASS COMPANIES WHEN CALLING AROUND FOR QUOTES TO REPLACE THE WINDOW AND THEY ALL SAID I'M NOT THE FIRST F-150 OWNER WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. GRRR. THERE ARE A COUPLE DOZEN OTHER COMPLAINTS OUT THERE TOO FOR THE EXACT SAME THING FOR THE EXACT SAME WINDOW ALL BECAUSE OF A STUPID REAR DEFROSTER GLITCH. THIS IS RIDICULOUS! I HAD THE WINDOW LOOKED AT TO SEE IF SOMETHING HAD HIT IT AND CAUSED IT TO SHATTER BUT THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF THIS SO I'M BLAMING THE P.O.S. DEFROSTER. THE WINDOW BLEW OUT ON MY WAY BACK HOME SO THERE WAS SHATTERED GLASS IN THE BACK OF MY BED. ONLY $600 TO GET IT FIXED. NO BIG DEAL.. NOT! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! >=[ AND THAT WAS THE CHEAPEST QUOTE. I HAD QUOTES FROM $600-$950. OY. THIS IS B.S. ALSO, THE DESIGN OF THIS REAR WINDOW IS TERRIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO REPLACING IT. AS I HAVE RECENTLY FOUND OUT, YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE LEFT OR RIGHT REAR WINDOW BY THEMSELVES. IF THE LEFT AND/OR RIGHT WINDOW SHATTERS (BECAUSE OF A CRAPPY DEFROSTER OR OTHER CRAPPY REASONS) YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE REAR WINDOW, HENCE THE $600 BILL FOR ONE BROKEN WINDOW. IT THE MIDDLE WINDOW BREAKS YOU CAN REPLACE THAT BY ITSELF BUT IF THE WINDOW ON EITHER SIDE BREAKS, YOU ARE S.O.L. I CALLED A FEW DEALERSHIPS TOO TO SEE IF THEY COULD DO ANYTHING. NOPE. NOBODY GAVE A HOOT. BOO FORD, BOO. I WAS SO HAPPY WITH MY TRUCK UNTIL THIS. ONCE AGAIN, >=[
