    Spontaneous windshield crack?

    My 2018 Model X windshield cracked today, without any sign of physical impact. I am wondering how. We went to a local county park. The windshield was fine when I parked and put up the sunlight shield (from inside). I found the crack 1.5 hours later when pulled down the sunlight shield to go...

    I have had my Model 3 for about 1 month now and put almost 700 miles on it. I just noticed this small hairline crack on the bottom portion of the front windshield on the passenger side.

    Model X Glass Roof Crack

    So 6 weeks into ownership, my glass roof above the right passanger seat has a crack in it. It is hard to tell what happened and when, most likely something hit hard from outside. From the impact it looks likely to be a small rock or debris. Took it to the Tesla Service Center and they told me...

    Alas, new problem: Windshield Stress Fracture. Anyone else?

    While washing the car yesterday, I noticed a significant crack in our new (2+ week-old) windshield. I believe that this is a stress fracture, and hence a manufacturing defect, and not related to a road hazard or other accident. Note that the crack proceeds from the free edge of the glass at its...
