Default Windshields

Anyone heard of any issues with windshields? I doubt it, but thought I would check. I just got a ding in my windshield which QUICKLY turned into a dirty great crack! I was blown away with the speed with which the crack appeared. I didn't get a chance to plug it with super glue.

So, where would you guys recommend I go for a winshield? A friend of mine took his truck down to that place on the corner of Fireweed and Arctic. He was happy with the work, but thought they were expensive. I forget what they charged him.

I had/have a problem wiht my windsheild. Last year I got a rock chip or whatever, then it quickly grew, to only ~2" long, I went to a place to have it "stopdrilled" they claimed couldn't do it, the very next day, it had grown to ~12", I went to the glass place on Denali, Novus I think, he said they could do it, and "stop drilled" it and then filled in the crack with the same stuff to "hide it" Although just recently (a year later) the crack is becoming visible again, could be all the car washing, although it has not grown. He only charged me $50

Subarus attract rock chips on the paint and the glass like they are a magnet. They must have been aerodynamically designed to let the rocks hit them just right!

I use Speedy Auto Glass, but I do not know how expensive they are. I dropped my deductable way down, so that I do not have to pay more than $100 for glass replacement.

Later....Kris

That damn crack grew about another 2". Now it's ~8" long. I should check into the "stop-drilling". I should also check what my deductible is, and see about replacing the windshield in the summer. I'm not going to do it now, with all the rocks flying around.

Well my Window cracked all the way across in under 30 min... thing was that it doesn't seem like it was caused by a rock chip, as the crack started from the very bottom of the windshield....


sigh

I would read more about cracking windshields on this site.

TRY DOING A SEARCH!!!

I've read about people having this same problem. They don't know what caused it but the cracks start at the bottom of their windshield. Most people have had the dealership warranty the work too. Good luck with Continental.
