When should you get a new windshield for your luxury car?

Knowing when to get a new windshield for your luxury car depends on the extent of damage and the safety implications. Here are some general guidelines to consider:

Cracks and Chips: If your windshield has small chips or cracks, it’s essential to get them repaired promptly. Smaller damages can often be repaired before they spread and require a full windshield replacement.

 

Size and Location of Damage: The location and size of the damage play a crucial role in determining whether you need a replacement. Cracks longer than a certain length, typically around 12 inches, may necessitate a replacement. Also, if the damage is in the driver’s line of sight, replacement is usually recommended for safety reasons.

 

The extent of Damage: If the damage to your windshield is severe, with multiple cracks or extensive shattering, it’s best to opt for a replacement rather than a repair.

 

Safety Concerns: Your windshield is a vital safety component of your car, providing structural support in case of a rollover and assisting airbag deployment. If there’s any doubt about its integrity, consider replacing it to ensure the safety of you and your passengers.

 

Inability to Repair: If the damage is too severe or the crack has spread too much, repair might not be a viable option, and a replacement becomes necessary.

 

Legal Requirements: In some regions, there are specific regulations regarding the extent of windshield damage that may require replacement for a car to pass inspection.

 

Insurance Coverage: Check your insurance policy to see if windshield replacement or repair is covered. In some cases, repairs may be fully covered, making it a more cost-effective option.

 

Reduced Visibility: If the damage obstructs your view significantly, it can be hazardous to drive and calls for a replacement.

 

In summary, always prioritize safety when it comes to your windshield. If the damage is extensive, obstructs your vision, or compromises the structural integrity, it’s best to get a new windshield for your luxury car.
