Going to have to replace my windshield again. 3rd in 4 years.
Does anybody sell a better quality windshield out there? Or do they all come from the same supplier?
You need one of these, alleviates some of the chassis flexing.
More likely difference is shop hourly rate. May or may not represent difference in skill. It's been a while, but those prices seem high. (240+USD), my last one was 130, maybe 10 years ago.I have to replace the windshield on my car before the end of November so it will pass the safety inspection. I've had it quoted by several different places, ranging from $320 to $402.50.
I can only assume that the $80 difference is a variation of the glass they're installing, or what kind of sealant they're using around the edges.
Have done it for years...on different cars...same day is usually ok.I was told by a Safelite guy to carry a windshield repair kit in my glove compartment and pull over and use it immediately if I got hit by a big rock.
If anyone has had any success with this method, please comment.
I'm going on 3 years with a small crack along the bottom edge of mine. It'll get changed some day, I guess.This is why I don't bother. Unless it is so bad I cannot see properly of course. But a small crack, I let it go as long as possible.
I would probably be replacing a windshield in all of my cars every year otherwise...
