My neighbor, when I lived in Abilene, Tx., owned a glass repair company. He never once spoke of any problems with Asian glass when we discussed autos and glass repair. I believe it is a well over-rated problem, myself. Here is a sampling of some changes in the auto industry that really don't indicate any particular problems with Asian glass. Although not specific to any problems with cracks and such, it sort of shows the USA companies are willing to use the stuff much, much more these days.
GM Considers Asian Windshield Sourcing | News & Analysis content from WardsAuto
I lived in an area, Abilene, TX., that had lots of gravel roads and a large, large amount of gravel trucks on the roads there all the time. My Honda had a couple of cracks or nicks from me driving behind a gravel truck and my PT Cruiser did the same thing. Hardly an upright windshield on the Cruiser, but the Hona was pretty close to the Soul design as to height of the windshield. In all the years of driving, I never once had a windshield chip on any of my daily driver Model A Fords. If you can find a flatter windshield that what comes stock on a Model A Ford, good luck to you. They are like driving a brick in the wind. Still, I never had a problem with their flat windshield. Again, I believe the Asian glass stuff is very over-rated and probably something that makes some folk feel good to gripe about if they ever do have a chip or crack happen to them.
We were driving to Garland for a dental appointment yesterday. We passed through an underpass that was litered with a bunch of boxes and debris. Lots of it kicked up and went all over the front of the car. As noisy as it was, I actually thought we would have had some damage to our paint or a possible broken windshield. Lucky for us we got clear with no problems. If something had chipped the windshield, I'd probably have been looking to blame the Asian glass instead of simply understanding that sometimes poopie happens in life and it has little to do with the quality of glass from Asia. Just pop it just right and with the right amount of debris and force, and you probably will get damage.
