I really don’t care much about the seamless. I just want to prevent the crack from spreading outwardI don't think you can fill this in to be seamless.
FYI, the original glass for the MDX costs about a grand US. I replaced it last year.
That it will do. But if it's going to be a real distraction in your sight...I really don’t care much about the seamless. I just want to prevent the crack from spreading outward
No, my insurance doesn't cover cracks in the windshield.Does the insurance cover yours?
A windshield is considered a comprehensive claim. A comprehensive claim will usually not increase insurance premiums.Don't use your insurance and have a claim registered to your account over a $65 savings. Insurance companies share a data base of customer claims (similar to carfax) and base your premium (costs) on that history.
Sorry to hear you had bad experience with Safelite. If Safelite want to replace the glass because it can’t be repaired then I will have to look around for a reputable glass installer in my area (Boston).We have had two negative experiences with Safelite. Both involved damage to the finish of the roof adjacent to the rubber windshield seal when the old windshield was removed. They must use something sharp to break the seal, which scores the paint finish, and living on the coast, this causes the metal to rust. The damage couldn't be seen once the new glass was installed. After about a year, rust bubbles formed on the front edge of the roof, just behind the rubber windshield gasket. I finally got USAA to cover the cost of repairing the damage and refinishing the roof. The repair also required removal of the headliner that also had to be replaced so the cost of Safelite's shoddy workmanship wasn't cheap. On the other car we developed an interior leak and again had the same roof rust problem. It was an old Chevy Blazer that we were no longer driving. The rust got so bad that it ultimately cracked the windshield. My Dad had the same thing happen after a Safelite windshield replacement in another state. I got a small crack in the windshield of my MDX last December that I am living with rather than allowing Safelite to touch it.
DO NOT USE THE SAFELITE BRAND GLASS! It is terrible! You will be back having it re-done numerous times and the quality of their glass is pitiful compared to OEM glass. My girlfriend has had to go back three times in her 14 MDX due to poorly installed and defective glass. Insist on the OEM glass.Just talked with Geio. They will send Safelite Auto Glass to repair onsite for free. If they determine after stress test that it can’t be repaired I will have pay $100 deductible for the after market glass replacement. If I choose to use OEM glass I would have to pay the difference. Geico can’t tell me how is the difference yet until Safelite has a quote for OEM and after mark glass send to Geico.
Any guess how much price different between OEM and after market glass?
My preference is have it fix than replace.

Sounds like the problem wasn't just isolated to the glass quality but the quality of the installation work as well. That is where I had my problems as described in my earlier post. Safelite will not touch one of our cars again, ever. If we need a windshield I'll find a local reputable glass company and see if they can work through my insurance co.DO NOT USE THE SAFELITE BRAND GLASS! It is terrible!
