Hello everyone, and thank you for your attention. I have been looking into having my windshield replaced. I have had my soul for 6 months, and have recieved one crack (small chip started it) and one chip. tried to "repair" them, but it obviously didn't work. Its 445 dollars for a new windshield from the dealer, and at least 100 to install it. I read the prior threads and the lawsuit link against honda for the element design. I think we should get together and discuss all aspects of this problem. Maybe we, as a new car owners community, should bring some type of formal writeup to KIA, informing them of our dilemma and how unhappy we are of the service we have recieved. I have never had a cracked windshield, and used to drive down the Mass. Turnpike every weekend with my previous cars. Two long trips home to NY on major highways in my Soul, and two cracks. Any ideas on how to present this problem to KIA in a manner that we might have some type of positive response? Thanks to everyone in the Forums for all your help and support.
