This windshield cracks easily

I have to have the windshield on my 2017 Hyundai Ioniq replaced for the THIRD time. (3 different pebbles)
I have never had this many problems. Am I the only one?

How close do you drive behind other cars? I drive at 4 bars behind other cars and don't have any pebble issues.

Welcome to the forum.

So we can help you, please tell us where you are from by filling in your location info under Edit Your Details in the User CP section. This is an international forum with many differences between countries. And while not necessarily applicable to your current question, adding your powertrain variant and trim level to your signature is also helpful.

That said, there are a couple of people on this forum who have had to have their windshields replaced, but I don't think more than once per person. But the majority of people on here have not needed this. It could be just down to dumb unfortunate luck. Do you drive a lot on unpaved roads? It's not exactly an off-roader, after all. What is the terrain like where you are?

I've had to replace mine once. That was from a large rock that was kicked up by a dump truck. It was replaced with an OEM windshield and I've had no more issues. The car has about 46000 miles on it now in less than two years and has taken more than one hit in that time.

I had mine replaced about six months ago because of my stupidity. I touched the wiper arm while the blade was removed for treatment. the wiper arm, with out the blade, hit the windshield and cracked it. Replaced with the original Hyundai windshield and never have any related problem.

I’ve had to replace my windshield too. I caught a pebble rock at the extreme top of the windshield and a 6” crack soon spread. I used an after-market replacement which cost $600. The defroster sensor hasn’t worked right since as my auto defrost comes on all the time, unnessarily. I must have the dealer examine this under warranty.

I had mine replaced at about 15000 miles due to a rock hit that spread into a crack top to bottom in the driver's field of view. They used a Hyundai windshield as there were no aftermarket products available. Since then I've gotten 2 more rock chips that I was able to have filled quickly so they won't turn into cracks. I'd agree the windshield may be a little more susceptible than other cars, but it could also be unlucky timing.

The same thing happened to me. The company that installed the windshield botched the job and the auto-defogger was one of the things that stopped working properly. When they fixed the job by replacing the windshield again, it started working properly. I assume they didn't plug it in properly the first time.

I think most examine the reflective index of the glass. When it isn't wet, it has I higher reflective index. When the glass is wet from condensation, the internal reflective index drops.
