I've had a 13 Legacy for 2 weeks, I noticed a chip on delivery, and they replaced the windshield last Friday. This morning a rock hits and instantly another chip all the way through. My Saab had been making the same commute for 139k and not one chip.... Is it the windshield? Is it the angle of the windshield?
Sometimes it is just luck of the draw, but I strongly suspect that Subaru's glass is just uncommonly brittle.
Our replaced windshield on the '10 Forester, which was done last June (almost exactly a year ago), has a plethora of cracks in it already. Thankfully, they are all doing an elaborate dance along the bottom of the screen, so it does not impede vision. But, there are so many of them that the distance between several of the cracks are actually delaminated. I can see the resulting translucence from outside the car.
I hate to say this, but this screen is actually holding up better than the last one. We have several pits in it that are decently sized and yet no cracks stemming from them. The OEM cracked with the slightest provocation. The problem is that my wife simply had a string of bad luck as far as taking rocks. we only have 20K miles on it since the last replacement, yet we really should do it again. I don't have it on the maintenance schedule until June 2017.... !
