My apologies for not replying with the outcome from Ford and the Dealership on this.
Ford gave me some issues on assisting with this initially but they eventually caved and took care of it but I did have to pay a deductible towards my Premium Care Warranty. The dealership contracted out the repair to a local glass shop and they did find that the adhesive or the rear window had a gap to the rear hatch door frame and possibly the defrost had also contributed to the rear glass exploding.

Looking for anyone with similar issues and experiences .
My list of problems is quite lengthy,

-10,000 kms driver side heated seat failure, heater replaced,Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible

-50,000 kms waste gate on the turbo failed, dealer replaced under Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible.

-58,000 kms rear window exploded, gap in seal and defroster contributed as well, big fight with dealer and Ford, Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible

-70,000 kms Again, driver side heated seat failure, heater replaced,Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible

-80,000 kms Engine died on HWY, wrench light, engine light on, limped and coasted to side of hwy, dealer found ac belt exploded and took out some wires and sensors, Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible

-82,000 kms front end sway bars and links replaced, and rear end suspension and bushings replaced, Premium Care Warranty paid $100 deductible
