I've heard a few tales of excessive costs for windshield replacement with the adaptive cruise control, and here in Colorado, broken windshields are likely to be a regular occurrence. Not sure I've ever gone 6mo out here without a crack in my windshield. Have the costs gone down at all for replacing the glass with the sensors? Better to just skip this option entirely?

Mine through Safelite was $601. That's in Utah and no re-calibration (they said they couldn't do it). I've had six rock chips but it hasn't broken again yet.

I don't get the wildly different windshield costs. I replaced mine at the start of the year and it was over $900. Safelite did the work, too, and it was covered under insurance. I doubt there is any significant difference between the regular windshield and the safety one.

Pass it’s a lot of money and the sensors are wonky , the dynamic cruise control is a nice luxury but for dollars spent it’s a pass

On my 2019 Tacoma windshield was $500 and recalibration was over $300 at Safelite. A few weeks after I had it done, it cracked again.

I solved the high cost replacement problem when I got my JL... no sensors whatsoever, front and rear. Not once have I missed them.

In Florida, if you have comprehensive coverage windshields are covered at no-charge by your insurance company (deductibles don't apply). That being said..... I have a cheap Jeep (if there is such a thing), so my windshield should be similarly cheap to replace.
