Dude my windshield split totally in half over night one night and I can't find a new one anywhere. I went to the dealership and they want 600 for the glass. My insurance is a 500 deductible and I said screw you to everyone. A windshield should not be freaking 600 bucks it's a kia not a Bentley or a Jaguar! Any ideas on where to get the glass for less? Oh by the way all the local glass places cant find it either since the car is so new.

Sorry to hear that. No warranty on it? did you get hit by a rock or something?
No idea what happened it's a horizontal single crack from one side to the other. Dealership wouldn't cover it I tried that's when they told me it was 600
:( doesn't sound like an impact caused it. Windshields are laminated glass, it's highly unlikely that a crack caused by an impact would propagate horizontally through the entire width without spiderwebbing or cratering. It sounds like a defect in the glass itself during the manufacture or install. Any chance there was a big temperature shift the night it happened?
Sadly we will now have to refer to you as postcrack.

My dealership uses a 3rd party for all their glass stuff I tried talking to two different people they both gave me the number to some place called magic glass. I'm about ready to give up for a year or so for prices to go down. I did see a Hyundai with practically the same hood and A pillars but they could not tell me if the windshield was the same.
