I carry a low deductible for glass. I get a new windshield at least every 2 years.
Our first big windshield problem was in Oregon. Taking the transport minivan (woo hoo pontiac) to sell to my uncle in portland (who works for HP wren). Going over the pass on the freeway from Idaho, got a nice big crack in the cold weather up on top. It just spread when we came down into the valley.... The day before we sold the car of course!
I have free glass on my car, but a big comprehensive deductable.
