They will ask you to prove it came off their truck and not off the road. Very hard to get them to pay....Judge judy watcherNHOJWOLFE said:call the gravel company , they will put they are not responisble for rocks on the back of their trucks but this happened to a friend and they ended up having to pay for his windshield.
That's why I carry "full glass coverage", no deductible.NWrain said:My wife was driving near a gravel truck. The truck hit a bump in the road and dropped some gravel. Crack! The windshield broke. :'( Getting it replaced tomorrow. Cost including tax is $480. Expensive, but not as much as I thought.
put some masking tape around the windshield and see if the noise goes away and what side for sureNWrain said:Since the replacement there has been a whistle from the passengers side between about 30 and 45 mph. Very annoying. Not sure what the glass company will be able to do about it other than replacing again which I really don't want to do. Going to call to see if there is a quick fix they can do. Otherwise I guess I'll have to live with it. Ugggg.
Sorry to hear about your misfortune..I'd check the windshield before they installed it and see if it has the same labels on it that the old one has IE: GM Acustic etcmdh4psu said:My brand new (33-day old) 2011 Terrain was struck by metal road debris causing scratches to the hood and a chipped windshield. The hood is being repaired and repainted to include the re-application of the ResistAll paint protectant (30-days after cure) and the replacement of the windshield.
My vehicle is still being repaired but I was told they are using Pilkington auto glass for the replacement of the OEM glass. I have done some research on the Pilkington website and feel comfortable using this vendor's glass. I am not sure if anyone else has used this OE glass before and if any feedback can be provided.
Thank you all in advance!
