If it starts on an edge and/or is longer than a dollar bill, it will have to be replaced.
Can't be repaired...

yeah it is on the edge...by "fix" i did mean replace, its just hard to act like you're paying attention in class when you're really focused on vortex instead....

Re: Damn windshield cracked on the way to work (NJTDI)

If you're in warranty still, take it to the dealer and blame it on a stress crack.
I went to my car one day and it had a 5 inch stemming from the base of the passenger side windshield and what you need to do is arrange for an OTS (Owner Technical Specialist) to examine it and give the green light to replace it free of charge.
1- Contact your local dealer and ask them when is the next time the OTS will come
2- Arrange a meet w/ the OTS at the dealer to let him check on the stress crack
3- If green light, arrange a date for the dealer to replace windshield

Re: Damn windshield cracked on the way to work (OoNaveLoO)

I don't get it!
Drive to store. Windshield ok. Exit store, get in car, 7 inch crack from driver's side windshield pillar inwards
. About 1/3 of the way up the windshield. So what gives? There's no chip; it actually seems to start from underneath the pillar. So I gather the next course of action is to call the dealership?
What a pain in the arrrrrrrrrrrrse!

Re: Damn windshield cracked on the way to work (IwannaJettaVR6)

Same here! Parked one night, woke up and there was a crack on the drivers side of the windsheild. The dealer used a pen writing across the crack up and down looking for a sign of imapct. After several unsucessful tries, they told me they would replace it. At first I thought I hit it too hard with the Club, never knew they coulc crack under stress.
