I think it's the size of the windshield that makes it more susceptible. I heard a couple of loud cracking sounds coming from the windshield but thankfully no cracks yet

Sorry to hear that! I think it's going to be an expensive windshield to replace. Probably needs OEM: Sound deadening, odd shape, plus camera calibration. Would be interested in finding out how much it will cost to repair. I'm sure I will have to face your predicament soon enough.

Don't go through Safelite if you want OEM, go through the dealer instead.

Wow - seriously? That's disturbing. Factory defect maybe ?

Chips along the edges or are they from rocks?

Ouch! I wonder if it the windshields would cost more of SX owners because they're polarized.

Wow.. I was afraid of that $1018 =>$758 USD + install. Looking at $1k USD for windshield replacement.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi, my windshield chipped easily in April (only 350km). Had to wait 3 weeks and got it replaced at dealer per $1250 CAD (labour + windshield ). I am really surprised that it chipped so easily and I am super disappointed.

Middle of the windshield, below the sensor where I keep my dashboard cam...something around 3 inches. I was driving about 70 km/h on a well-maintained road, no cars at front or passing. It was so weird!
