The Cost To Replace My Windshield?

We have a 2002 Ford Escape, and recently noticed a crack about 13 or so inches long down by the windshield wipers. So, I was wondering if anyone would know the approximate cost to have the windshield replaced? I would like to have a good, possibly lifetime warranty on the replacement.

    It really depends on where you are and how much competition is around. Here in the Detroit area there is a lot of competition, so windshields from glass shops start around $200.00 and go up from there depending on how “fancy” the windshield is (a Ford Escape has a pretty basic windshield, so you could get one in Motown for probably around $200.00-$250.00). However, you can chuck the idea of a lifetime warranty in the crapper — there is no such thing for windshields. They’re required to be made out of a certain grade of glass by the government, and there’s always the possibility that glass will crack or break.

    It shouldn’t cost you anything. Most car insurance policies replace glass for free, with no deductible.

    I have a 2004 Escape & have had to replace my windsheild 4 times. While living in Mass, replacment was free in with my insurance. After moving to NH I had to pay $100 deductable & one time I let it go so long that my insurance wouldn’t cover it anything, but I only paid $150.00 with out the insurance. I think it differs from state to state. I don’t know about a lifetime warranty. My damages were caused from a portion of Rt. 95 being dug & rocks were flying everywhere.

    some insurance companies cover windshield replacements as part of your coverage. Check with your insurance company to see if your windshield is covered for free replacement.
