2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD Long-Term Road Test

2014 Mazda CX-5: Cracked Windshield

February 25, 2014

2014 Mazda CX-5

Earlier this week, I promised commentary from my road trip in the 2014 Mazda CX-5. Here's the first installment, but it's not in chronological order. Rather, this is what happened at the very end of the road trip. As I was driving south on Interstate 15, a rock flew up and hit the CX-5's windshield, creating a star on the passenger side of the glass.

Within an hour, that star became a 12-inch-long crack.

Accordingly, we'll be replacing the Mazda CX-5's windshield before our long-term test ends. And of course we'll let you know how much it costs.
