Cracked Windshield: A Very Expensive Mistake...
I should have taken her advice, as that is exacly what happened!
I've had cracked windshields before, and never have they expanded so quickly, and so extensively.
I called Geico, my insurance company, and asked what I should do.
They told me that as long as the crack isn't longer than a dollar bill, they'll fix it for free, since it's my first glass claim.
But my buzz was killed when I drove my car over to Safelite. They told me that the crack was just beyond their ability to repair it, and that I'd need a new windshield!
No way, I protested, because I have a high deductible ($1,000.) Replacing the entire windshield would cost me north of $640, all out-of-pocket!
I called up other glass shops, and they all told me the same thing. They explained that repairing a crack that's too long renders the glass unsafe, and they don't want the liability.
So I'm leaving the glass as it is, until I find someone who will fix it for cheap.
What a headache.....
