Question Windshield covered under warranty?

This might be a dumb question but was wondering if anyone knew if the windsheild is covered under warranty?

I know stuff that is damaged from usual wear & tear or abuse isn't covered (but brake pads & wiper inserts ARE covered by Subaru). In the case of my windshield, a crack appeared on the driver's side this morning & is slowly getting longer/spreading. There is no discernable damage like a rock having hit the glass. It's just a crack starting at the very edge of the windsheild & moving across.

Anyone?

take a ball point pen and run it's tip in the crack. It will drop into the hole that started the crack.

Subaru does not cover windshields under warranty... but they may do a good will if no rock chip can be found.

Have the crack filled before it spreads though...

most insurance polices have total glass coverage built in. call yours and i bet you got it. it shouldn't raise your premiums either.-jeff

Everything is covered to 3/36k. After that, it's your insurance (if it covers it).

News

Just called my local Subaru dealership -- Subaru of Morristown NJ -- & the service guy there said windshield damage is NOT covered under warranty.

But he did suggest I bring the car in next week anyway to have the service manager look at it. (Next week b/c the manager is on vaca this week.)

I'll give it a shot & report what happens.

Not true.......a broken windshield is usually caused by an outside influence, which is not a matter for warranty. There are rare instances where a windshield can crack from stress, but it's unlikely. Most windshields break because of a chip from a rock, etc.

tires...possibly. I have an 05 OB XT and the tires wore extremely fast on the outside shoulder. I thought the alignment and toe were off. After finally getting the subaru tech to check it, I found out it was off by quite a bit and they replaced all 4 tires with an alignment. Apparently it was out of spec from the get go.

The tires were covered because the alignment was off....it was resulting damage, that's why Subaru took care of it.....

But if the tires were just normally worn....not covered.

Wipers are covered....

No go on the replacement of the windshield by Subaru. There was a pit which could have been from a stone. Just got the windsheild replaced today by a company that comes to you. Job was done quickly & professionally. I would have gone through my insurance company but the cost of the replacement was less than half my deductible so that was a wash.

Have you actually checked the terms of your insurance? A lot of companies have zero deductible on windshields.

Also there are a few one time adjustments that can be done under warranty and they are alignments and wheel balances, brakes and other wear items can be as well.

Should have just called your insurance just in case. Some states require no deduction no penelty glass repair no matter the cause...

South Carolina is like that. If your windshield breaks you call the insurance and they send someone out to replace it. No questions asked, no deductible, no nothing....

My insurance policy in maryland also covers it with no deductible but its part of the policy I took out...

Inserts now, not blades. Only if inserts are not available.
