Was on my way to work the other day and when I pulled into the parking lot I noticed that i had a crack in my windshield. I didn't hear anything hit it and when I looked at the windshield there was a very tiny mark where something did hit it. The hit mark wasn't very big (about a 1/16 of an inch) but the crack was about four inches long. Called my insurance company and was given a number to call. They are replacing the windshield tomorrow. Seems like every time I get in the car the crack has grown. It is now a very nice "S" shape and about 9 inches long.

I have, it took two different company's of windshields before I got one that was molded right and had all the right curves, Whatever windshield you go with make sure to have the installer order the Toyota molding and have that installed instead of what comes with the windshield, the Toyota molding is the only molding the fits right.

Windshield cracks will continue to grow if left unattended. If you get bored, tomorrow morning when its still cool outside, crank your defrost on high heat and watch it cruise across the whole windshield. Fun to watch if you're getting it replaced anyway.

Wow. That was fast. Took about a half hour to replace the windshield. They did have the correct molding. :cheers:

I have an '08 xB. I am on my 4th or 5th windshield. Maybe 6th? I forget how many. The slightest ding by road debris cracks the thing in a day or two. In any case, there's definitely a problem. But the most recent one has lasted for over a year. (Knock on wood.) So maybe the manufacturers have changed to better specs/shape.

I haven't had to replace the xB yet, but I have had my other vehicles windshields replace in the past at no cost to me.

Get "ZERO" comprehensive deductible and it won't cost you a cent to have your windshield replaced. Ask your insurance agent what the difference in the price of zero vs. $100.00 deductible and I'll bet you will want to get the zero for the small price difference.

The more verticle the glass the easier it is to damage!
