Hey your record is better than mine! I'm 0-2. :lol: I can tell you that one of mine spread and one did not. Exposure to freezing temps and the defroster is what did the spreading for me, so you may be okay for the summer.

Nope, it has three also... I think the one is lifted out of the way to show the crack better.

I'm wondering??? Do you have a OEM brush guard?
I did and my windshield seemed like a rock magnet. I had 5 chips and a crack in 4,000 miles. After I put on an ARB Bullbar I havn't had any in the last 7,000 miles. It's got me thinking maybe the aerodynamics are different.

3 cracks for me. They all started below the wiper. Got 2 under control but the 3rd is a problem, its about 12 inches now. Dont have the coverage but does anyone know if I call up and add it will they inspect beforehand. If I would have known the big problem I sure would have gotten the coverage but with 4 other vehicles and the last 30 years and hundreds of thousands of miles have never needed it. 10 thousand miles on the FJ and I would be on my 4th winshield if not for being so cheap.

More than likely not. I think it all depends on who you are with. Geico didn't do an inspection on any of our cars when we added them, but when we had AIG through a local agent he inspected and photographed the car we were adding before writing up the policy.

our ins. will send someone out to repair the chip/star/crack with NO out of pocket $$$. If the crack still spreads then we would have to pay the deductible to have the thing replaced. So far all is good in our windsheildland!! only a few/many pits!! :)
ps. on all the crack repairs we have had done in the past on other vehicles it was hard to tell where the problem was when they finished (except on a huge one 2"star with a 6' crack!, but it never spread after the fix). This was the cheaper way for us to go as we had a $500 deductible back then!
