I joined the club today. Less than 10k miles. Barely heard it hit my passenger side and it quickly spread all the way over to the driver’s side. 2020 limited
Sorry to hear...go to dealer...call and send email to Hyundai. Pronto !
Good luck...the glass has issues.?

Within 2-3 months of owning my Palisade, a rock hit my windshield on the highway and cracked all the way across within 2 days. I had it replaced through insurance. No other issues.

2020 Limited AWD. I bought it new.

Edit: Added Year/Model.

2020 Palisade windshield cracked a few days after picking it up, it does not take too much to break or crack them. After 1 year you can hardly see out of it with the pitting in the windshield. They are absolutely a very poor quality windshield and very expensive if you replace them. The wind noise and windshield should be addressed by Hyundai for sure.

Agree...been driving and owning for 53 years...never had a cracked windshield...never had sooooo much pitting
until I purchased this vehicle....one good thing perhaps came out of this...made us owners safer drivers,as we now leave plenty of distance
From the vehicle in front of us on the highway...

Was driving about 50mph on NB101 at Hospital Curve in SF. This stretch of highway had been recently repaved. A small car in front of me must have been kicking up debris. I heard 3 high pitched impacts and cringed. It was very early morning, pre-sunrise, so I had no idea where the rocks were hitting. Two days after the impacts I noticed a tiny chip and a 1/2" crack creeping out from this chip. I had 150miles to drive home and was praying it didn't grow any bigger.
Got the Palisade into a windshield shop the next day and had it sealed. The manager was telling me all new glass is thin and they see a lot more cracked windshields than they did 20 years ago. Thin glass all in the name of weight saving for fuel efficiency, but we pay for it with easier cracking windshields.
Anyway, hope this repair holds. I can't see the crack any longer, but I can still see the little tiny chip in the glass.

I was on separate road trips about a month apart and received cracks and chips just as you described. I also had them sealed just after each happened. This was a year ago and they are still holding. The glass guy said that the seal would stop it from spreading, and it has.🤞
