They don't bust or explode. If your crack as gone all the way from one edge to another that's as far as it can go. Just looks ugly and often if it's in the wiper area they may not work as well when going over the crack.

Tesla fixed in one day, wife got an old model S to drive around Bloomington. how exciting lol

Insurance a struggle. the fact it is a reimbursement, I wont get my payout for 30 days. progressive....

I expected difficulty on some things, because its only a year and a half old car model.... but it still sucks.

State Farm had a check in my hand, before the repair. Based on the estimate.

I did book the replacement out 3-4 weeks based on my schedule, so that helped.

watched my wife pull the Y into the driveway after work yesterday, windshield fine. Leave 30 minutes later for tacos, her and the kids in the car, I walk up, they're pointing at passenger side windshield. 8" crack emanating from the edge...

ZERO evidence of a rock chip and she never heard one.... so not sure where it came from. But it was NOT there when she got home.

Car is 4 months old. Have appt in St Louis Tuesday, but that's a 3 hr drive, not super thrilled about that but I knew this difficulty when we signed up....

Curious: What are the chances warranty handles this? And if not, WTF. lol

photo not working-ill fix that in a sec.
Hey did Tesla cover it ? Or did you pay out pocket? I have the same exact problem with MY LR. I just got my Model Y two weeks ago and last Friday my wife and I was leaving to take a long drive from Seattle to Vancouver BC. My wife noticed the cracked from the passenger side. It was a long cracked from top edge to about 4 inches below the rear view mirror with no signs of rock chips or puncture. It looks like it cracked by itself.

Nope no warranty like i t hought.

rock chip. insurance claim. $500 deductible, I had Had to pay in full, waiting for progressive to hurry up and payout already. They need to fix their system. Their glass claims Goes directly through safelite, but safelite doesnt replace tesla windshields. So its kinda of a circle of nonsense.

I have a 1/2 inch crack on the passenger side caused by a rock impact. Filed the claim immediately with my insurance co. ($50 deductible) and went to Safelite. They were very knowledgable about Tesla glass, but at this time, said to just leave it and keep watch on it, because attempting to fix it will make it worse. It has been about a week and it hasn't spread, and the weather here has been up in the mid 60s and down below freezing, with pre-heating the car, nothing has spread yet. I've had my local SC (Sterling, VA) already replace the roof and windshield previously, and it was pretty painless.

I had a crack on the back glass/window. Tesla said it’ll be covered under warranty as a stress fracture since there’s no damage on the outside glass ie rock chip.
