Small Windshield Chip Can Cause Big Problems

If your vehicle's windshield has a small chip or crack, don't ignore it, fix it. According to the non-profit Car Care Council, disregarding a small crack now could lead to bigger problems later.

"Windshield damage may happen unexpectedly, and should be fixed as soon as possible," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "A neglected small chip or crack can turn into a larger one, requiring more costly windshield replacement. In addition, drivers could get ticketed and fined if the crack obstructs vision."

When a vehicle owner notices a problem with their windshield, they should not wait to get it fixed. A small chip or crack can grow larger, and if another item like a rock, golf ball or baseball hits the windshield, the damage can expand quickly, compromising safety and requiring full windshield replacement.

"Repairing a small chip or crack is inexpensive, easy and quick to fix, and the vehicle owner's insurance may even pay for the repair," said White. "Ignoring a windshield issue is like neglecting teeth cleaning and ending up with cavities or gum disease. With simple maintenance, you can avoid a much bigger, more expensive issue."

    Had a maintenance light come on, the employee that helped me was friendly, checked on my car in the parking lot free of charge. It was easy and simple.

    I came here in a bit of a situation. My radiator hose broke apart as I was driving down the interstate. First, I took my car to Firestone and found they were charging ridiculous prices to fix this issue. I then brought my car here and Steven was extremely helpful and got my car in and out In a great amount of time and came in about $100 cheaper than Firestone. Would definitely recommend for anybody in a situation like I was!

    Best prices in the area and excellent, cheerful, FAST service. The battery and alternator in my 2007 Ford Focus died while I was traveling between Alabama and North Carolina. I sat at a coffee shop and did extensive research on the best price for a mechanic all up and down the highway between Ooltewah and Chattanooga. I must have called 15 places. Patrick at Maxi gave me the best price, by a long shot. Furthermore, he and his team squeezed me in at the end of the day on a Friday so that I could get on the road. I was blown away by the excellent pricing and superior service. If you're looking for a fairly-priced, high quality mechanic in this area, this is it.
