I have replaced the windshield on it TWICE so far, due to random rocks. I'm not an ass rider, as the people riding with me can attest, both times previously I was several car lengths away from anything. Both of the previous replacements cost $500 each or so.
This summer, it happened AGAIN. Rock out of nowhere, put a good size chip in the windshield. Being pissed about it and dejected, I didn't immediately repair it because I knew it was going to cost me a whole new windshield. Yeah it was a chip, but some very small cracks could be seen, and I knew these would just get bigger.
This weekend due to the cold weather, the crack ran all the way across the windshield.
So begrudgingly I called my insurance again. I had contacted them when it happened, and they told me it probably wasn't worth the price of the deductible (my deductible is $500 also), so either way I'd be out $500. (Insurance is different in NC, in FL the last two were replaced for free because of some FL law about not wanting people driving around with busted windshields)
Then I called the glass place. $240, brand new, installed, tomorrow, in the parking lot of my work.
