A zero deductible for comprehensive on your insurance policy typically costs very little. I had the same experience as you and changed my policy afterwards.

My 2 cents.
I'm not sure And I have no prove of the shooting I just assume and saying out of frustration. I was in front of everyone Driving under the bridge when I heard a loud noise on the windshield. It could have been a large piece of rock fell from above.

Wow! I called my insurance today, they routed me through safe lite. They asked for my VIN and still have not got back with me about the price yet.

I was very excited to see this post right now but unfortunately it went in another direction. Instead of starting a new thread I will tell you my story. So my car is now 3 weeks old 1500km. Today was the 1st snow fall that the car has seen. Work ended at 4pm. I sat in the car as I was excited to use the windshield wiper heater thing and turned on front and rear as everything melted off the car. As I moved off I know it was not there before a long crack on the driver side. I think stemming from the base of the windshield. I will be at the dealer first thing in the morning and hope they dont give me any problems. I do not see any chips that would indicate some kind of impact. I must admit am nervous but hoping for the best. I think the hot and cold cracked it. Today was -14c or 17f

YES! I'm quite shocked about how many people don't seem to go over their coverage and see what all of their options are as far as various coverages, deductibles, and pricing with their agent. Maybe it's just lazy agents that bundle whatever package they see fit, I don't know.

Things like $0 glass deductible and rental car reimbursement are only a couple of dollars for each policy period at most companies, and when needed, they are worth it ten fold!

I haven't paid for a glass replacement on any car in my lifetime, and there have been probably 6 or 7 of those.

Update: There was a stone chip close to the base where the black part is clearly visible to me now. May have been there for a couple days but when the heat hit the glass with the cold equals long crack. Went over insurance papers and see nothing about windshield you guys are right I am guilty going to give them a call. Dealer mentions no one has winshields in Toronto for new Santafe they have been looking.

My insurance covered the repair of a rock chipping my windshield around Thanksgiving. Tiny crrack was repairable so I opted for the repair. No deductible.

Whaht I am being told is the insurance companies cover stone chips as this is quickly repairable and prevents a full blown windshield replacement. Had i seen the chip i could have prevented this. Now this leads to some research I have done. The last 3 cars I had came with bug deflectors. I wonder if this was helping with the stone chips. I may invest in one at the same time the repair is being done.

Are you getting a repair or replace the windshield? Mine is not repairable because the crack is longer than 6", it has to be replaced according to Safelite auto glass company.
