Yes wife was driving down the road, and something hit the driver window.Splitting the window :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Well do the glass shop it went, paid the deductable for the insurance BCAA. The guy at Speedy was stunned to see the $1800.00 cost for the window. Due to the dual layer glass with a lamination for safety film in between the layers of glass.

Now we have to take it back the window motor has to work hard to get the window up. ::)

They must have installed bullet proof for that price and that's why the motor strains..

FYI the laminated side glass is one of the reasons the Equinox is quiet at highway speeds. Pricey but effective.

That's what I was thinking...

but, does gmpartsdirect sell aftermarket as well as OEM?

Maybe the problem is with the OP's invoice...

Windshields are laminated and over twice the size of door glass

The glass came direct from GM to Speedy ::)

And yes it is the acoustic glass which is factory.

I had my drivers side front window replaced also, the shop charged $6XX.XX for the glass and labor. I was going to order the window and replace it myself but the cost of the window was the same price as my deductible so I had the shop do it and also repaired some unrelated dings in the door also. The guy at the shop you went too must have a drug problem to be charging 3x the price of the already over charged $6XX.XX

Edit: Just looked up the exact price. REMOVE/REPLACE L Frt Door Moveable Glass 688.95

One would think there would be a markup on the glass and then add in replacement...
No wonder insurance is so much with companys charging 3x as much

Update. Sept 4,2011
Took the Terrain back to Speedy Auto glass to check why the drivers window goes up and down so slow.Making a issue for a possible motor over load in the door.
Well after a few hours they tried
-lubing the tracks (no improvement)
-sanding the edges of the glass (new one they installed) NO improvement

Now after I showed the manage the cost of the glass out of GM parts online they have ordered a glass direct from GM.Both Speedy and GM think the issue is with the curvature of the aftermarket glass (speedy installed) not being correct.

So now wait till Friday we hope anyway then Speedy is to have the glass from GM.
