The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

I'm looking through you

The windshield malfunction from the Tour has now been repaired. After looking over the damage, our man at Metro Glass shrugged and said, "I can fix that."

He could.

If the light hits just right, you can see where he's filled in the crack, but it's not horrendous, and the price — fifty-five bucks — was right. And eventually I'll have to replace this windshield, probably about the middle of the '05 Tour, but for now, this will work just fine; the offending area, after all, is way over on the passenger side, and how often do I have passengers?

Geico covers windshield repairs with no deductible. I guess they figure it's cheaper to repair than replace.

About a factor of four, based on the quotes I gathered.

And I have a $500 deductible anyway; it would never occur to me to turn in a claim for $55, just on general principles.

Me either. My windshield replaced was only about $140. So I just paid it out of my pocket.
