Had my challenger for two weeks and I already have a crack on my windshield from a 18 wheeler slinging rocks. :smiledown:

:( That is a bummer. In 3 days of owning mine I had a good ding in my bumper. Fortunately the detailer that applied Opti-Coat to my car was able to fix it up.

Sorry to hear that, thats never a pleasant thing to deal with, hopefully it will be fixed and as good as new again real soon.

That's a definite bummer.....but nothing that Safelite or one of those glass repair companies can't fix. It'll be good as new in no time!

I think the windshields on our Challengers is an easy replacement for a glass shop as it sits mostly on the top of the seal.

That stinks! I must either be super lucky or my front glass is made of Wolverine's bones only clear. It's survived fist sized hail (no lie) and numerous rocks. I've clearly heard on 3 separate occasions rocks flung at my windshield, only to find absolutely no chips or anything when inspecting it later. Hope you get yours fixed! :smileup:

I just got one of those the other day. Going to wait until it starts running to replace it. Thankfully it hit my window instead of my paint.

I love those signs on the back of trucks that say "Stay back 500 feet - Not responsible for broken windshields"... as he cuts me off or zooms by me..
I'm gonna get a sign on my car saying "Not responsible for gunshots at irresponsible truckers"

Less than a week into having mine I got my first door ding. Still need to get it repaired. Hardly noticeable, except for me.

Had similar happen when I purchased a new truck back in 08. Had it three days and got a rock on the windshield. Brought it to safelite and they had me fixed up in no time and 4 years later when I traded it in, it was still good as gold.

Why wait when you can repair the chip pretty cheaply? I know wal mart sells a little kit for like 10 or 15 dollars to repair rock chips. I think safelite will repair a rock chip as well, albeit idk the cost of this procedure. Both are much cheaper and easier on the eyes than letting it run and replacing later.


The day I brought my challenger home, I noticed a rock chip in the front spoiler. Took a nice chunk out the plastic. Sucks but oh well, you can only see it from up close and you can only tell that it's a chip when you really examine it. Otherwise, it looks like a drop of water on the matte black plastic.

Gives me a reason to buy a SRT front lip in the future :).

Lol. Yeah, never understood the truck signs "stay back 500 feet". That's over a football field and a half. Not sure about you guys but I can probably barely tell its a truck, let alone read a damn sign on it from that far. Oh and by the way, as a driver, of any vehicle you are responsible for your load.
