Ford Excursion

The 2004 Ford Excursion has two doors that swing open and when closing them you have to be very careful because you can close the window into them if you are not careful.  This morning we received a call from an Excursion owner that had this happen.  I personally almost had the same situation with the Excursion once before so be careful.

2014 Subaru Crosstrek XV

When searching for a replacement windshield for your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek you should make sure you let the customer service or auto glass technician know if your vehicle has heated seats, mirrors or the wiper deicer feature.  This will ensure they quote you the correct price for the replacement but more importantly bring the correct part during installation.  If they install the incorrect windshield it could cause your vehicle to have a check engine light turn on and also could make you lose your windshield wiper deicer feature and nobody would want either to happen!

2014 Hyundai Sonata

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata comes in two versions the Hybrid version and the standard version.  When looking for windshield replacement on the standard version you want to make sure you know which windshield you have since there are two windshield part types available for this vehicle.  One part type has a heated wiper park area and the other does not.  The easiest way to determine which replacement windshield you need is look inside the car there is a button that looks like a windshield and it has an led that lights up when you push it in.  It's called a wiper deicer or you can lift up the windshield wipers and see if you can see a black line within the windshield that's always a quick way.

Reasons Glass, Windows and Windshields are breaking around the United States

I hear some funny stories while talking to customers daily and some  stand out more then others.  Most of the time if I am not extraordinarily busy I will ask how it happened and about 90 percent of the time I get an answer the other 10 percent of the time the person is either so upset they don't want to share the reason why the breakage happened.
  1. Hit a pole and it shattered the back glass
  2. person woke up one morning and there was a crack on the right side of the windshield and within one month the crack had spread across the entire windshield
  3. In the DC Area there is a lot of construction on the 95 and a rock had jumped up out of no where and struck the windshield breaking the glass
  4. A Honda Odyssey had a allen wrench thrown thru the window
  5. A Break in for a book bag (this is a common problem when you leave anything valuable or looks like it could contain something valuable in it)
  6. Another vehicle got hit by a rock on the way to work
  7. Rear view mirror came off and when trying to reattach it it caused the windshield to crack.
Everyday there is always a few new stories and that's what makes the day interesting.  If you encounter a broken window in your vehicle give us a call and we can replace your glass.  We offer mobile service throughout the U.S.  We offer discounts to Military and Teachers.     Details

Today’s Broken Windshield Highlights

So recently I realized I have a treasure trove of stories on how windows, windshields, quarter glass, vent glass, side glass and back glass break.   I started to take notes on all my calls for the day and am going to share those with my audience.   Today here's the list of reasons of why windows broke......  
  1. Backed into a mailbox
  2. Break in
  3. Chip in it and it cracked as soon as it got cold and below freezing
  4. following a truck and a rock came thru started as a little chip and turned into a huge crack
  5. ran into something
  6. Rock Chip
  7. Heat running inside the car and the window was cold and the person slammed the door and broke it
  8. Crazy EX Girlfriend Driver Front Door Glass
  9. Rock Chipped it first and then it spread
  10. The Club (The steering wheel car security device) tapped the windshield and cracked it.   He said he barely tapped it however it doesn't take much pressure to break a windshield.  I once seen a man karate chop a windshield from the inside of a mustang and break the windshield!!!
