Kia wound up correcting their windshields? Or covering the replacements?Not good! I really want them to follow Kia's lead and cover these! This, sadly, may be my last Hyundai.
As I understand, Kia hasn't made any improvements with their windshields but is covering replacements when breakage is unknown (not an event that would normally result in breakage like a rock, wreck, etc,). I don't know about covering of aftermarket products such as your ceramic coating, I would think they wouldn't cover that--but obviously I don't know. In THAT event, I could see maybe your insurance company covering the coating. It would be worth a shot to ask them though.Kia wound up correcting their windshields? Or covering the replacements?
I had a ceramic UV film installed on the inside to protect my leather and reduce heat. I'd want that to be covered, at least initially.
This should not be neccessary. Contact Hyundai,explain what you did and why you did it.Would love to see their response.So I found a fix for future windshield problems. I moved my deductible to $0 at a cost of $160 a year. now every time my windshield breaks it wont cost me anything until Allstate cancels my policy
I have the 0 deductible on comp, and am with State Farm. I was told that what may eventually happen with too many claims is that they'll raise my deductible, so I wouldn't think you'd be cancelled. Hopefully if there are a ridiculous amount of replacements, Hyundai will start standing behind their windshields as Kia is now doing.So I found a fix for future windshield problems.

I sure wish that USAA would have windshields covered separately from the Comprehensive.I spoke with USAA. Safelite is their preferred glass company. Looks like a trip to the shop and a trip to a dealership. Both are covered with insurance minus deductible. $500...
They have to be imported by Hyundai Motor America from Korea. Whether there is a shortage in Korea depends on the window manufacturer and how many spares they have over and above new car production requirements. Hyundai in Korea is not going to slow down new car production in Korea by siphoning needed parts in short supply to HMA for replacements.Back order until when? If the windshield has not been changed for the 2021 model,one would think there would be no shortage.
There are two things that could be causing the windshield problems.I have a question for those of you who have had a broken window: have you had it happen again? If you had one break, do they replace it with a better window and then you're set, or do you end up in an endless loop of broken windows? We were discussing whether we should wait for the 2021s in the hopes that the window problem has been fixed or if we should jump on one of the deals on a 2020 and figure we'll have to replace the windshield one time.
