Re: Jeep lease returns with existing damage
Keep in mind a windshield is a structural element of your unit-body Jeep. From a safety perspective, you'd better fix it.
I just replaced the windshield on my leased 2012 Ford Focus. Stone chip developed into a 2 inch crack in the span of 2 minutes, and 1 foot within 30 minutes. By the time I changed it, the cracks traveled the length of the windscreen. That tells you how much torsion is actually happening when driving on regular roads.
