2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This vehicle has had 3 cracked windshields in less than 2 years, and we can't see where anything hit it causing the crack. What we have seen is the crack occurs in an unusual pattern each time, in a 90 degree angle, looking like an "L" shape. The dealership says it's a coincidence. We disagree. Even the dealership says they haven't seen this pattern of crack before but they deny it has to do with the window shield frame or the installation pattern. We are sick of dealing with this and are worried that this is going to affect our premium for insurance.
VW needs to find out what the problem is and fix it!
Ever heard of the COMPREHENSIVE part of car insurance ?
I always carry a ZERO deductible on this part. I covers all the glass.
Your premiums will NOT go up since windshield cracks are NOT the result of driver error.
