The combination of that with a rather sharp turn while pulling forward put the truck trailer in a V configuration and Pop went the rear window. The whole rear window has to be replaced and I'm out $500. Sad part is I even have the manual slider but did not think I needed it. Live and learn.
Any way insurance would cover it? You don't HAVE to tell them it was your 5er that did it...
I was sitting in traffic in a construction zone not all that long ago. Just sitting there minding my own business in my Grand Cherokee when BAM! The rear window went out!! Scared the S#!T out of me. I thought someone had shot at us. I was able to pull off the road safely and check things out. I assume it was a rock slung from a piece of equipment from the construction zone, but never found what actually did it.
We were heading to a conference, so I contacted a friend who gave me the name of his glass guy who came out to the hotel parking lot where we were and fixed it right there. IIRC it was less than $200, so I didn't bother with a claim... Probably should have at least asked though. My new insurance agent is a good friend of mine, so if it ever happens again, I'll just text him and ask...
