asja Yes I have used Safelite to fix a chip in my windshield. It's still holding up. My insurance covered the cost completely (USAA). I have also had several windshields replaced by Safelite and had to pay $200 each. If you have your windshield replaced, be sure to check your new windshield thoroughly! Very, very, thorough! The last windshield I had replace, it had several scratches right at eye level that would have driven me bonkers, and I refused to pay for it until they replaced it again. The installer even offered to waive the $200, but the scratches were in my direct line of sight, so I refused. They came back the next day with a another new windshield.

Liesje I had a small crack and when I called they said if it was smaller than a dollar bill, insurance would pay for it completely because they'd fix the crack, not replace the glass. If it was bigger, I'd pay $100 deductible b/c of the type of auto insurance I have. They were going to come out the next morning but overnight, the little crack spread the length of the windshield so I cancelled the appointment. My crack runs the length of the windshield a few inches from the bottom so I haven't fixed it and probably won't.

JakodaCD OA I"ve used them on my suv, got a spider crack, they repaired it with something, worked for a couple years, but it's now 'back' will call them again, No I didn't pay out of pocket my insurance pays

kbella999 Thanks. I'll look into the kit. I have full coverage on my suv but don't need my insurance rates to go up any more than they have. Plus I figure I'd just have to pay deductible anyways.

holland If you have windshield included your insurance will pay for it-and they will come to where you are and replace it-they can repair but the crack needs to be small

Lucy Dog How big is the chip? If it's really small, I'd just try fixing it yourself. I've used this kit before with good results.

Gretchen I called them to replace my windshield on my 04 BMW, I actually needed the rubber molding replaced and they refused to come out.

The advertisements saying your insurance will pay for it is a gimmick. That only works if you have a very low deductible, mine is $1000 - so no my insurance would not cover it. Many people only have minimum coverage. We ended up using a company that replaced the windshield on our large commercial truck. They came to our business. Many local businesses are able to do this too.

Springbrz I have. It worked and my insurance did pay for it because I carry comprehensive coverage....Nationwide Ins.

You can call your insurance company and ask if they cover this service.

Safelite windshield repair

Has anyone used this service and did it work for you? A rock hit my windshield and chipped it. Also was wondering if you paid for it or if your insurance did.
