Default f***** winter **** *******

I got 4 major rock holes in my windshield in one day. The windshield was replaced right before I bought the car from the dealer, oem HUD windshield, no flaws at all....



- I hate trucks
- I hate gonneville (brian) becuase he drives one
- I hate trucks
- I hate trucks that pass other trucks and hit the gravel
- I hate hud windsheild prices
- I love hud
- I love hud
- I love hud
- I hate trucks



My car has also seen the first salt EVER in its life.


winter + nice cars = no


I get to drive solo to salt lake 8 hours of driving on monday and I'm sure we are going to have a repeat of trying to go to boise.


If I had a 2000+ ssei that I paid 10 grand for I might loose it, maybe its better if I drive older cars.


If anyone from a non-salt state replies to this thread I may throw this computer into the wall.

/rant





good news is that even with just 2 snow tires on these cars they are fricken awesome.

Come winter, mine gets run through the drive-through, extra 8-10 bucks, car wash every other tank - Which means every other week.

And, just wanted to mention I run the same tires year round, and haven't had any issues with the snow yet.

Good luck on your trip! Be safe

How about a non-snow state

Rocks in the windshield do suck. You couldn't try to stop the spread of the cracks by using a drop of super glue??
Not sure if it would work but,it'* a thought

If it'* still just a star fish they sell a repair kit at most auto parts stores that will fix it, and prevent it from cracking.

I've gotten several stones in the windshield but no chips yet. But I'm surprised I haven't. Have a safe trip Hans!
