2016 Honda Civic: Finally, the Windshield Has Been Replaced
by Travis Langness, Automotive Editor on July 7, 2016
When last we left our long-term 2016 Honda Civic, it had a cracked windshield and it needed a new one. After weeks of trying to locate some new glass, Safelite came through with an OEM replacement. The windshield showed up and we were ready to have it installed, but it wasn't meant to be.
Our installer was missing the proper molding the first time we met, so we had to put off the installation for a later date. They came back a week later, prepared and with a second set of hands, and got the job done quickly and correctly.
Setting up the second appointment was easy and the Safelite van showed up inside the promised time frame. The whole process including installation, payment and wait time for the windshield to set, took less than three hours.
Here are the original price quotes we received and what we ended up paying in the end.
June 3 Safelite Price Quote: $782.76
June 7 Dealer Price Quote: $804
June 7 Dealer 2 Price Quote: $864 + tax and disposal fees
June 15 Safelite Price Quote: $756.58
June 29 Safelite Price Quote: $858.94
Final Price Paid to Safelite: $816.41
