Windshield cracked

Last night on 75 going south between Allen and Plano, something came out of nowhere, hit near the top on the passenger side. Very loud and very large.

Sucks, cuz I am sure windshields are just plentiful right now...

Also have to wait until Monday to find out what it's going to cost...

No luckily no damage other than glass, it was right at the top thought it may have hit the roof. It was a long wait while we went on to our destination to find out how bad the damage was.

Not a bird unless it was frozen or made of lead.. The impact was solid, and loud. Scared the crap out of my wife.

Just have to wait and see what my insurance glass coverage is... We'll see if Nationwide is on my side.

I'm not sure if it was a national or just florida ,but i think insurance companies just give you a winshield replacement voucher to get it fixed.No deductible required.I think it was mandated

This is the way our luck runs too. Brand new in 03' GMC....dump truck busted the glass. Brand New 08' GMC, crack along the bottom, Brand New 08' Yuke, rock thrown right in the center of the driver's side. Bummer for you, but more than likely for me too later.

How long did it take for your dealership to get the windshield shipped to them?

I caught a rock on the windshield right in front of me, so even the glass guy said I would be able to see where the repair was and it might just be better to replace the whole windshield.

I know there's a black plastic something located to the right of the inside rearview mirror. Anyone know how easily it is for the glass guys to remove that from the old and reattach that to the new windshield is?

Let us know how everything looks.

It took exactly 1 week, it happened Saturday the 13th, I called the Dealer Monday the 15th. He called me yesterday said the glass was in. I rode in the back of a Demo pickup holding the windshield, Other salesman followed in my car to Safelite, the were the cheapest to install at 125 even.

That box you talked about is related to the remote start, it was no problem for them to remove and re-install.

Looks good as new... Since GM is the only source of glass right now there is no chance of aftermarket replacement, this is good for originallity, but hard on the wallet.

Yeah, I figure it'll cost enough that insurance will be picking up the tab (minus the deductible), which sucks cause I know they won't be happy about that...

All depends on your deductible, it was not worth having a claim to me since it was only a little more than 500, which is my deductible.
