Window Etching
 
Ordered a Overland and on the bill see $239.00 for window etching is this a scam ? Dealer says if car is stolen or totaled i get $2,500 in addition. From who? Talked to my insurance agent with window etching i save $12.00 a year. Any one know about this window etching is it good to have ? If not i will call and have this removed from my bill.

Scam at worst, or at best, a huge markup by your dealer on an item that you did not request.

While it may make glass harder to sell for thieves, window etching can be had for no or low cost by third parties.

Fuggetabout paying for it.

i refused to pay......its already done so they cannot remove iot.

later you can call the number and buy your own coverage for way cheap.

tell them PAYING for something like that is a deal breaker.

All my cars have this etching. All the cars i am seeing today have it. I'm sure people didn't get this done after. How many have this etching and wasn't aware of the charge? I must have payed this before and didn't realize it.

NOT A SCAM!

I had my Acura stolen with window etching and yes, i did get a check, at that time it was $5000! This was in 2007. Worth the 239!

Must be local, only one of my herd has glass with etched VINs. It is a '92 & reasonably sure were not done at the factory. In fact I am not seeing VINs on any of the normal places (doors, fenders) on the Laredo, if are more than on the VIN plate, they must be hidden.
