Yesterday while driving home I heard a loud pop on the front corner of the car. No objects were observed hitting the car. When I inspected the car on arriving home I found a crack on the windshield in the upper left corner. It is now about 18 inches long.
After performing a search on the internet, I found a few videos on youtube of owners having the same experience. Oddly enough the cracks are in the same location coming down from the top left corner. I have filed a claim with against my Geico auto coverage. Safe Lite called me and informed me it may be a few months before a replacement can be obtained.
The reason I am sharing this is that I have suspicion this is a manufacturing defect due to stress on the glass in this corner. I am looking to find out if anyone has been able to get Tesla to replace as a defect? My coverage has a $500 deductible. Has anyone had a similar experience and advice on handling the claim?
