It’s pretty weird that my car is 12-1/2 years old. We’ve had some rocks hit the windshield pretty hard but never cracked or chipped the windshield.
Yesterday, I two two chips/cracks. I couldn’t believe none for 12-1/2 years and then two in one day.
I called Liberty Mutual and, we’ve had very few claims – one accident in MO in about 2008, a hail damage claim for the Honda the first year we were in TX and now a windshield repair. I called them and they got a repair set up and by the end of the day, my windshield was fixed.
When I called, they told me they have good results fixing cracks that are not more than three inches long. The glass shop wanted to do it the next day but when I told them one of the cracks was already about 2″, they told me to bring it by, I did and they fixed both of the.
You can still see where each rock hit but the cracks have pretty much disappeared.
Hopefully I’ll go another 12-1/2 years without having another cracked windshield.
