Seems like Ridgeline's rear window is made of very thin glass - much thinner than windshield & side windows'. In a rear-end collison scenario, flying debris can easily break through it thus hurt the backseat passengers. Car thief can also break in with a small hammer. Seems all pick-up trucks have the same issue. Am I wrong? Or is it just as thick/strong as the windshield?

The winshield is laminated safetyglass,, 2 layers about 2mm thick each,

Sidewindows are usually tempered safetyglass about 4-5mm thick, however some newer and more luxurious vehicles use laminated glass here too. They reduce noise.

The rear slider is tempered safetyglass, about 3-4 mm thick, and likely the weakest of all.

Love it anyway.
