Q&A Corner: Pitted Windshield
A recent question from Robin A. of McLean, VA:
Question: “My windshield isn’t cracked but it has hundreds of these tiny pits that are causing glares and impairing my view. Is there any way to remove the pits without replacing the glass?”
Answer: Unfortunately, not. Pitting of a windshield is normal wear and tear. Over time, small objects such as road salt, gravel, sand, debris, etc, create very small pits on the surface of a windshield. As they accumulate, they create glares, reduce visibility, and become a valid safety concern. The only way of removing the pitting is by replacing the windshield. Any polishes that claim to help will only be a temporary fix, if effective at all.
Windshield Guide: HUD
Head-Up Display, also known as HUD, projects information found on the instrument panel/dashboard (speed, navigation, etc) on to the windshield, in an effort to keep the driver from having to look away from the road. It typically does so through a small projector located inside of the driver side dash. Previously only seen in luxury brands, like BMW, HUD is becoming more and more common with even economy brands like Chevy and Honda.
Joyce W. of McLean, Va:
“I have a really tight schedule, so driving my car into a shop and waiting hours just wasn’t an option. 5 Star Auto Glass made the process very convenient by coming to my work in McLean. The tech completed the replacement while I went on with my work and day. He finished in about an hour, and the new windshield looked great.”
