Maybe its just you Joe? Just kidding it seems to be the bain of the congested roadways and the construction vehicles and especially the lack of routine sweepers cleaning the roads,its not just you nocracks yet but those little divits you call them?

I have the same problem. I am not sure why but almost once a week my windsheld gets hit, thank goodness I found a good place that fixes the divots for just under $30.00.

I have the same problem, I got my 08 Nitro for Xmas 2008. Two days and 35 miles later a tiny stone from a semi cracked the windshield right in the tinted area where there is no molding. I had Safelite do the replacement because Geico recommended them. I have a huge air leak that Safelite can't track down they have replaced the glass 4 times and the problem is still there. The company said there is nothing else they can do. This makes me very frustrated because my boyfriend bought it for me for Xmas and we haven't even made our first payment. Does anyone know of a company that has replaced a Nitro windshield with no problems? I am not settling for an air leak that sounds like a window is down at 40mph and up.

Bad Luck

Hi Everyone
I think this is just bad luck. I have been driving for 36 years. Lots of cars and trucks. Only two replacment windsheilds. Same car 1999 Ford Taurus both cracked within two months. Still have car no more trouble. I think what it could be is wrong place wrong time ? My Nitro gets door dings all the time but thats just part of ownership I guess.

Mine has been a magnet for rocks, no idea why, mybe just the right height or just my luck. I tend to lead to my luck. I have the wiper blades that are just one blade, one curved blade. they work great!
