New windshield for the Forester

jason safelite

Jason St. John, our local Safelite technician came to our house today and replaced the broken windshield on our Subaru Forester.

We picked up a couple of chips in the glass since our arrival in Arkansas four years ago and the most recent one opened up into a crack on the driver’s side of the windshield last week.

Maria was concerned that it might worsen into a real hazard, so I called our insurance agent who recommended Safelite. Since we have a $500 deductible on our policy, this had to be covered out of pocket.

To my delight, the whole thing came to $242.92 – much less than I expected, especially since the windshield has embedded heating elements for the wipers.

Jason showed up earlier than expected, which was a big help since I wanted Maria to have the finished product in time to drive the Subaru to work. He even vacuumed the car and washed all of the windows, inside and out.
