Cracked windshield

Last night I suddenly noticed a little horisontal stripe, 5 cm long, 10 cm above the dash. I couldn't see any marks on the outside.

Today the crack had grown to 30 cm

It's obvious that I must change the windshield, but at the same time I wonder if some of You have experienced the same as me? On a new car this isn't normal!

I have the infrared windshield with heating.

Re: Cracked windshield

Never heard of this happening. If there are no marks indicating a stone chip or similar it should be a warranty replacement.

Re: Cracked windshield

Windscreens can crack, there appears to be no rhyme nor reason to it. Might have had an imperfection in it when it was made? Take it back to your dealer and if it's not a warranty item, I'm sure your insurer will help you out
