I need the Straight Dope on Replacement Car Glass. First time in 40 years of driving that I have to replace a windshield.
Thanks for your knowledge and advice in advance!
Are there differences in quality between the Econo places and the Dealers Body Shop? Or is windshield glass identical regardless of where it’s sold?
Installation - Is there anything they can screw up? Does it matter how experienced the person is? Only thing I can think of is water leaks. Anything else I should watch out for?
Does Size matter? Is a windshield for a tiny Nissan cheaper than my big ole Ford Econoline van?
Bottom line — should I take the cheapest estimate and run with it?
Time to replace my Ford Econoline E150 Windshield. A rock darn near tore right through it. I got a spiral fracture almost six inches across in the lower drivers side corner. I checked at my local GlassPro dealer and they said $168. That seems too cheap for such a big piece of safety glass. Are they selling something so thin a bird dropping will break it?
