Rock Cracked Window... What to do? :/

So last week, I was behind my brother's 91 GMC.. and it threw a rock up and chipped my window. I hadn't driven my car for 2 days after... and I didn't notice it until then. It had cracked the window about 6 inches from the point of impact. The crack has now (a week later) worked its way across my window another 4 or 5 inches... and I know it will only continue to get worse ... So what should I have done? My buddy was telling me about Safelite... but idk if I trust it. I assume I'm going to need a new windshield... and I've been told it's part of Chevy's "roll-over" safety stuff? Any input is appreciated...

Would you suggest going to the Chevy dealer to do so? I've heard it's pretty steep... I plan on heading by there to see how much it would run.

Call your insurance company first to see if it's covered under comprehensive insurance. Some states, like SC, have zero deductible for safety glass, like windshields, if you have comprehensive, regardless of the deductible limit stated on your insurance policy. Not sure about TN. Doesn't hurt to ask.

Even if you went to a chevy dealer they will just have a glass company do it anyways.

So I see TN has no deductible waiver for glass. Nevertheless, there is no option but to replace the glass. A Pilkington windshield (OEM) will cost about $500 minus your deductible.

I didn't realize they had a non-GM company replace it that simplifies things..

Usually insurance companies have a zero deductible for windows..I have zero deductible for all glass on my car. Check with them first, if not, safe-lite is good.

safelight glass sucks, it's thinner than OEM. I got the OEM quality pilkington from Glass America (glassUSA.com) installed for $305

I got my class for 0$ from safelite and it's not cracked and is holding up nicely. 0 vs 305? Pretty simple Decision lol

I suppose its all up to preference. We ended up getting a close family friend that owns a glass shop here in town to replace it for $260. I made the mistake of telling my insurance it happened 2 weeks ago and they refused to do anything because "all accidents must be reported within 48 hours"

Lol I guess somebody should've also said that on here sorry. But next time now you know that the accident "just happened "

If it's thinner, it's probably lighter which means you'll go faster. I may get me some of that Safelight sand.

I had the OEM replaced at the dealership on my 2010. They had an outside guy come in and do the install and I feel that he did a pretty good job. The bill was $415 out the door, but my glass coverage picked up the bill with $0 deductible. I have seen quotes for the HUD windshields though at $1300.

I didnt have glass coverage separately so it was up to the $500 deductable. HUD glass was I think low $500s installed.

Hmmm. It's just glass coverage. So it should be in guessing but maybe you should take the safe route and say something else

Safelite sucks. The guy that did the windshield on my Ram stole my EZPass and used it the same day. And they guy that did the repair on my wifes SUV screwed it up and instaed of a crack right in the line of sight there is a milky white spot. Both my insurance and Safelite are saying not our fault.

Satellite is a franchise and most of their complaints are of the actual repairs performed by incompetent people and not about the materials. If you find a good franchise dealer you will get a good job. I have had 3 windows replaced (2 front and 1 rear) and one chip repaired all by the same shop and one of them was even replaced in my driveway and all were of quality material and workmanship. Its just like any other franchise you have shady people operating under a company's name and the company gets the blame. Usually those people don't keep their franchise for a long time.
I actually have no complaints about the Satellite people I used.
