    Windshield is the front glass - rear glass is rear. This seemed to be an issue with early production cars. I'm sure there are threads here regarding that.

    could be a stress crack, in which case it would be covered under the warranty.

    Yes, I just had one appear a few weeks ago. It appears to have started at a heat trace and does appear to be a manufacturing defect. It's a known issue, but I have a mobile appointment coming up for them to inspect it to determine if it's covered. I took delivery in September 2018, so somewhat early production, but not super-early.
