Small Windshield Chip Can Cause Big Problems

If your vehicle's windshield has a small chip or crack, don't ignore it, fix it. According to the non-profit Car Care Council, disregarding a small crack now could lead to bigger problems later.

"Windshield damage may happen unexpectedly, and should be fixed as soon as possible," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "A neglected small chip or crack can turn into a larger one, requiring more costly windshield replacement. In addition, drivers could get ticketed and fined if the crack obstructs vision."

When a vehicle owner notices a problem with their windshield, they should not wait to get it fixed. A small chip or crack can grow larger, and if another item like a rock, golf ball or baseball hits the windshield, the damage can expand quickly, compromising safety and requiring full windshield replacement.

"Repairing a small chip or crack is inexpensive, easy and quick to fix, and the vehicle owner's insurance may even pay for the repair," said White. "Ignoring a windshield issue is like neglecting teeth cleaning and ending up with cavities or gum disease. With simple maintenance, you can avoid a much bigger, more expensive issue."

    I was coming into town when my car was breaking down and a trusted local recommended this shop, specifically Ron. These guys knew they couldn't fix my car in the timeline I provided, but they told me the truth, told me what I needed, and were honest in their assessment of next steps. Without hesitation I very highly recommend this shop, these gentlemen, and Ron's honest way of conducting business. If I were in the area with a car issue, I'd go no where else. Even when I took my car elsewhere (solely because it was a Sunday) they didn't find what Maxi did. Look no further, go nowhere else, these guys are the best. THANK YOU to Maxi!
