Well Peeps looks like these windshields are CRAP, mine cracked while defrost was on, I printed off a STACK of the complaints of the CRACKED WINDSHIELD CLUB took them to my dealer and said I know you probably think I’m full of crap but my windshield cracked after turning the defrost on and here’s all the complaints about the windshields so somebody somewhere is gonna do something, I’m NOT PAYING for something that was not my fault so they sent me to their collision center the guy came out and looked at it said he’s replaced several already he sent me back to the service center to see the service manager and he said they will replace it, problem is since these windshields are CRAP I DO NOT WANT THE SAME WINDSHIELD put back in I don’t want to go back up there in a month or so or even when the weather gets cold again and the same crap happen, so I am waiting for the collision guy to call me back to let me know if or what kind of windshield they will put in!!! After paying right at 57 thousand dollars for this Jeep they gonna put crappy a$$ windshields in? Seriously? Here is a pic of the at the time 25 pages of complaints remind you they are on the front and back pages!!! Come on @JeepCares replace our windshields with ones that will last like normal vehicles do!!!Couple more pics of mine...exact same scenario as yours. And the crack pretty much starts where the defroster melts the snow/ice first...JeepCares PM'd me saying they would work out a resolution - I assume that means a full warranty replacement windshield at no cost, as it should since this thing literally split in two in front of me as I sat there with the defroster on!
I made a hi-def video of mine as well (.mov) that really clearly shows there is zero chipping/cracking/pitting/starbursts anywhere along the length of the crack - more proof it was a material failure.
