A dump truck was hauling down the highway and the cargo fabric was not over its debris. Rocks flew out and one hit my windshield just right.

I took down the license plate (wife took a pic from passenger seat) and called the police. They said there is not much I can do but call my insurance. :(

Of course I have the cold weather package with the heated windshield. My deductible is $500.... I am sure they will say it needs to be replaced. Fun... Fun... Maybe I am wrong and they can blast it out or something.

Anyone have this occur yet on their Disco sport?

They actually may not have to replace it. It looks like it can be repaired to be honest. I would have tried to contact the company directly or something.. it's more effective typically as I'm sure these things do happen quite often

Keep us updated on the windshield repair/replacement. That's a worry of mine since I also have the heated windshield... (still trying to get used to the heating lines in the windshield - especially at night:eek:!)

I got it repaired. I can still see most of it, but it is filled and should not spread. If I am not happy with it, I can have it replaced through my insurance for my deductable. A new windshield (heated) is over $1k US.

I was talked out of replacing it as I was afaraid of losing the factory seal.... I have not had luck with this car and don't want another issue which would undoubtedly find me.
