When it come to the windshield, it will be hard to get Lexus warranty for that.

Let us know the result.

someone driving by fast and rocks came up and it hit the edge. Lexus said its road hazard so the insurance will pay for it.

Make sure you get OEM glass...not generic. Cost be damned.

^ No Lexus will not pay if the glass gets damaged, for whatever reason. Insurance will cover the repair though, subject to the deductible on your policy.

Like Jtrue28 said though, go for OEM glass. Do not go for the generic replacement.

they will pay for stress fractures, meaning if the crack originates from the edges, and there is no sign of impact damage. impact damage being a ding or something similar that a ball point pen can get "stuck in".. thats how they "test"

I see you're in TX. We had a severe hailstorm in Dallas a couple of months ago, and lots of vehicles were damaged (including broken windshields). I was lucky because I heard it starting and pulled the car into the garage. Was yours one of the cars with hail damage? Seems odd that a Lexus windshield would just crack under normal circumstances.

Why would Lexus pay for road hazard damage?

And "buy" your installer too. Too many of those "come to your office" sort of glass replacement companies get paid by how quickly they can get the job done. Do your homework.

ahh its 2089.00 for a new windshield without installation because of the heads-up display... Work is being done at the dealer, insurance is paying for it, my deductible is 500
I saw it on sewell a lot cheaper.

I drive freeways in N CA and I am on my 5th windshield. Seems the angle of the 3rd gen GS is conducive to flying rocks cracking the windshield as opposed to just creating a hole. Looks like 4th gen might be the same.
