This morning I just noticed a crack in my windshield. It's at the very bottom (by windshield wipers) and does not interfere at all with vision. It runs about 2ft. horizontally. I'm shopping for a new car this spring, can I get by without fixing it or is it a safety issue? Thank you!!! This site is incredible, you ladies are wonderful!!! Amy

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Amy, Suggest you get this fixed: 1. Your trade in value and/or resale value will be greatly reduced when you go to sell or trade in your used car. 2. It is not safe (not to mention illegal in some states) to drive with a cracked windshield if the crack is located in this critical area (windshield wiper area). If I were you, I'd call your insurance company and see if they will cover a replacement wholly or minus the deductible. Have them recommend a shop.
