2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Chipped Windshield

January 5, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo

Our VW Beetle's windshield fell victim to a small rock off the back tire of a jacked up Chevy Silverado just south of Hearst Castle on Pacific Coast Highway. It was partly cloudy and about 50 degrees. Cows were nearby.

The new Beetle's more upright windshield probably wasn't helpful in deflecting the force of that little rock. Hopefully we can repair the small chip and centimeter crack instead of a full replacement.
