So I have a crack and planning on getting a replacement.

I've been told I might need a new molding depending on whether the existing one can be saved. Not a biggie, small cost but wondering if others have been hit with a molding replacement.

Also, I've been given an option of a tint at the top. Checked my current stock w/s and see no tint at the top from the inside.

What's the difference? I'm guessing it's best to go with no tint since the vehicle does not seem to have one now?

Oh, visors! THAT's what those things are? I sit high enough in the seat that I don't think I'd go with the tint, but am interested in hearing what others have to say.

Should replace ours also as it's very pitted.

The factory replacement windshield comes with the trim piece included. After market windshields do not. I have had the windshields replaced on both cars multiple times (3 each?) and never had any issues with the replacement.

I usually get the tinted strip whenever I get a replacement. yeah, those visors are pretty much useless. it would be nice if they were hinged differently and could fold all the way back instead of forward.

About how much is the replacement? I have a few small dots due to landfill trucks carrying tons of rocks and hitting my windshield -.-

Not sure if a few dots are worth a replacement, but would hate for the dots to align perfectly and the last rock to break through and hit me upside my head :lol:

I'm not sure that would be such a bad thing. when you say dots, do you mean rock chips or are they pin sized divets? My suv had some serious cracks and a hundred dots and it was never a problem. can you see then from 5ft away? a new windshield is about 275 and can usually be covered on your comprehensive coverage. find how much your deductible is and if it's over half less then the cost then you can use them. otherwise, as long as it's not cracked and does not obstruct your vision and you can live with it then I wouldn't worry about it. I had a few dots on the wifes windshield and out insurance compant send out a repair guy to fix it for free. You could surely try that first.

When you get it replaced, make sure the trim piece at the bottom inside of the windshield does not slip down. Mine did, you can only see it from the outside but it looks like s#*t. It is very easy to straighten out while the glass is out and almost impossible to do anything about while it is in place. Good luck.
