    ask ko lang guys if possible po na mag crack ang window glass due to temperature inside the cabin? or what can be the cause kaya? wala naman po sign na binato or may ginamit na ibang gamit pambasag. overnight po nangyari to. yung crack po ay parang butil butil.

    car po is lancer itlog model.

    Can you post a pic of the window glass? Its highly unlikely that the glass cracked by itself if it was just parked overnight. Perhaps with sudden temperature change or a factory defect.

    Wow, buong section ng glass shattered...tinted siguro ang window kaya hindi nahulog yung pieces of glass.

    Let's wait for the other members to comment on this (if this is an accidental occurence or an attempted break-in).

    lancer itlog is quite an old car, so I would not say it is a factory defect.
    the windows are made of tempered glass which has the characteristics of shattering into small pieces under certain conditions.
    Without seeing how it happened, it will be difficult to tell what really causes it
    to shatter.

    naka garahe po ba ride mo o street parking?

    hindi kailangan ng malaking bato para mag shatter ang tempered glass. a pointed tool/object will most likely do it.
