DISCUSSION:

Windshield cracks caused by an impact from a foreign object; (i.e. stone) are often difficult
to identify. The following assessment should be used to verify the presence of an impact
chip on the crack.

If no obvious impact chip is present, run a ball point pen along the crack and feel for a
slight drop or pit in the glass. If a slight drop or pit in the glass is present, this indicates a
small impact caused the crack. If the molding contains a witness mark or dent from an
impact, inspect under the molding for an impact chip in the same manner.

POLICY:

Cracks caused by an impact are not warrantable.

Stone Chip Repairs

Sad to say but after owning my Orange SLT for only 3 months I have a stone chip. Not overly surprising since I've heard that familier sound ricoshaying off the window a half a dozen times already during my commute. Anyone try those auto repair shop to have the star crack repaired. I tried them once before for another vehicle with no luck...would prefer not to waste any more money. Thanks Andy

Thanks Danpfay99

I can live with the look I guess, I would really prefer to save the cost of replacing the whole windshield. Called around and it will cost me around $70. I'll try that first before spending the money on a new windshield. Wish me luck.

Their definitely not perfect. But more cost effective than replacing the windshield, especially if the chip is not in front of the driver. If it is, you'll have to decide if your wallet or your clear vision will win. Sorry to hear it. Seems to happen a lot this time of year.

OK, I am wondering if there is an issue with Nitro Windshield here. I had mine 3 days and the first time I got on the highway a rock hit it and cracked it. It seemed like a very small rock and we weren't moving that fast yet....
hmmmmm.....
I wonder how many of us have had this problem already..?
Also, any idea how much a new dodge windshield is?

here in manitoba stone chip repairs r free with our insurance plan and i find them ever effective and the thing is to do the repair asap in the summer months it s not so bad but winter months are the worst because as soon as u put the defrost on the crank will spread.
