Re: Cracked Windshield

I got a small rock chip in the lower right corner of my windshield as well when my car was 7 weeks old, funny thing is my last car had one in the same area so I am leaving it there so it can scare away all the other stones looking to damage a virgin winshield.


Other than these last two cars I managed to find some other way to damage the windshield with either a shift knob or a wiper arm or just buying a used car with scratched up winshield I guess it is just part of ownership.

Re: Cracked Windshield

Just so you all know, SRT8's aren't immune. Just this morning with less than 6mths ownership and 5200 miles my windshield is junk. Hit near top of glass with rock, cracked down half the center.

In ye olde days, when real rubber gaskets enveloped the edges of every windshield, there was enough cushioning provided by the rubber that these cracks were relatively rare. I'm told that getting rid of gaskets and going glass-to-metal had to do with airbags. Not sure I can figure out the reasoning, but the source was reliable.

Let us know how the fix works out, and best of luck!

Re: Cracked Windshield

All fixed like new by Safelite. OEM replacement and the guy did a great job. Said he respected the Jeep and ensured me the OEM was the right choice instead of aftermarket and he took extra care. Total damage to the wallet was $526
