Default Windshield

My 2005 Cresendo's driver's side windshield has a crack. What is the most cost effective way to get it replaced?

Can I replace it with a used windshield?

My insurance pays for glass with no deductible. AAA

Even if you didn't have insurance it would be cost effective to put it on there just for the windshield. It's a no brainer. They can cost upwards of $3500.
In some states like Florida it's a law that the insurance has to wave the deductible on a windshield replacement.
I don't think anyone pays for a windshield anymore. Why would they?

I don't disagree with a new windshield, I was just answering the original question

Call around in your local area. Call glass compa ies that just replace windows. I was lucky and the first place I called didn't do it but sent me to the right "Guy".



They are out there.

Your area code tells me you are in the Niagra Falls area. So...



First, Duck Duck Go is a search engine like Google. I use it because it doesn't track your browsing.



So here is a Duck Duck Go link to many glass shops in the Buffalo NY area. That is my best suggestion is to call some of them.

You can try just clicking on the link but you may have to load Duck Duck Go.
