Re: What has taken the most visual beating?
Have to agree - windshield. I got my first star-crack within the 1st 50 miles (fixed by the Glass Doctor folks). This has to be the "softest" glass of any vehicle I have ever owned. I keep hoping some semi shoot a rock into it and cracks it enough that my insurance will replace it. Other than a few pin-sized dings in the chrome grille, it is holding up better than expected. I really thought the area on the rear doors in front of the wheels where the clear vinyl piece is, would really get chipped up. But I believe the OEM splash guards are keeping it to a minimum.
They really use the sand and salt on the winter roads and freeways around here. And the freeways have a lot of cement debris from spalling, holes, etc that gets thrown up into the front and windshield of the GC.
