So a rock did a thing.

I’m in Phoenix AZ and just about…. Ok every time…. One goes on the freeway you hear a ping here or a ping there. It’s just a thing out here.

I heard one but didn’t see any damage. Came out of the Drs office to a 1ft crack in the windshield. The rock hit literally right at the edge of the glass. Lucky (unlucky) hit. So the whole thing is getting replaced today (and camera recalibrated).

I’ve had windshields replaced before, never saw them have to start disassembly before. Interesting.

Using Safelight as always. Didn’t even have to wait. I guess the glass is now easier to get ahold of.

Had a bad experience with Safelite. They came to repair a small crack and decided it wasn't worth their time I guess, so they made it into a non repairable crack and then told me I had to get a new windshield.

Yeah, nicks in the windshield are a way of life around here.

I placed a claim through Safelite and took mine to the dealer for a replacement. I’d rather let them do the recalibration.

How long did it take him to figure out 🤣
he knew right off the bat. He has done many apparently.

Seems to be fine. I’ve always had good luck with safelight.

great to hear you had quick service. It's one of the reasons I went full glass coverage on all my cars. It's $4 per car per year for me...worth every dollar.

Here smashed windshields are such a fact of life I don’t even think you can get glass coverage. It’s just a wear item. Usually you drive around with it until it gets really smashed. Glad the glass is easy to get ahold of now, hope the repair works out!

that’s why I have it through Allstate. It’s cheap and worth every penny. No deductible.
