I know there are threads covering this subject, but I performed a search for "windshield" and found no good thread results concerning replacement. The search feature on this website apparently doesn't work very well:indifferent: I first discovered my windshield was cracked yesterday, so just 10 minutes ago....I decided to start shopping windshields on the web. I remember reading stories of people paying nearly $500 to replace a windshield and I'd like to share my experience since I'm replacing my windshield today!!!!! I tend to go through a lot of windshields....LOL My car is only 6 months old, and I'm already replacing it.
I did a quick internet search (took seconds), and I called the first 4 places at the top of the huge results list.
These topped the list:
1. Safelite $459
2. Sante Fe Glass $322
3. Glass Doctor $337
4. Kryger Glass $322.....and they can install it TODAY!!
(all come with a warranty and they come to you)
Even at $322.....it's still an expensive windshield for such a small piece of glass. I wonder why it costs so much?? I've replace a ton of windshields over the years, and NEVER did I pay this much. I could have probably found one cheaper 'with effort', but I'm all about getting it done as quickly/easily/ and painlessly as possible.
Kryger Glass will be installing my windshield later this afternoon
FYI..........for all you folks out there with cracked windshields. LOL
Thanks for posting your findings.
The LX guys have been dealing with this since 2005.
One of the reasons they are so expensive, is if you have rain sensor. They are pre-installed on the windsheild and you are paying for the sensor as well.
If the crack is not to bad there are repair shops that inject into the windsheild. (much cheaper, but depends on how large the crack it) Most of these services will come out to you.
Good luck and keep us posted of your findings.
