Before we could repair a harmless chip in the windshield of our 2015 Ford F-150, it grew into a large crack, rendering the windshield unsafe and in need of replacement. We've had good luck with Safelite, so we went called them again.

    Glad to hear it was a good experience! That price doesn't seem too far out of reasonable cost. That's a whole lotta glass.

    Did you make an insurance claim? This type of thing isn't supposed to count against your record, and I think for replacement, the deductible is quite reasonable around $100.

    Odd definition of harmless. Seems you have evidence otherwise.
  • I'm assuming you got the Ford OEM glass? The article never states specifically.
  • What is it with the edmunds staff when it comes to cracking windshields and getting flats?! lol

    sounds like they went with OEM glass. would be interested to know what the aftermarket quote (if available) would have been. just priced a new windshield through safelite and it was around $400 with options; but didn't appear to be OEM. you get a lot of varying reviews of safelite. sounds like the issues are more about the quality of the installation than the glass.

    Welcome to the club Edmunds. I picked up a nice sized chip a while back and this morning I got nailed again, this time it spread into a good sized crack. Luckily it was through a construction zone that was riddled with rocks and the company is picking up the tab. I really like my F-150, but to be honest and fair I think Ford used the cheapest glass ever on these trucks. Today the impact was so light it almost sounded like a bug... WRONG!

    I get drilled in my Honda Accord all the time (commute 3 days a week) and it has never even picked up a chip, Honda must have used a quality glass back in 2006.
