Sudden Changes in Temperature can crack your windshield

I received a call today in regards to a 2013 Ford Mustang. This vehicle was being kept inside and was brought outside and as soon as it when from the heated garage to 20 degree temperature we believe the sudden change caused the windshield to crack. The same situation can happen if you turn your AC on when the windshield is really hot from direct sunlight.

Brick versus Window

This particular vehicle was vandalized in Bradenton, Florida. It's a punk move for someone to do but it happens quite often. Never leave anything in your vehicle like a bag, purse or of any sort of value it gives the low life criminals too much temptation.
