Does the BMW warranty cover a cracked windshield?

I’ve got a brand new BMW, and I just noticed I’ve got a crack in my windshield. Does BMW’s warranty cover windshields?

I’m so sorry to hear about your cracked windshield! Whether it will be covered under warranty or not depends on what caused the crack and what kind of warranty you have:
  • If the crack was caused by a manufacturer defect, it will be covered under warranty no matter what.
  • If the crack was caused by a propelled rock or another road hazard, it will only be covered if you purchased Windshield Protection as part of an extended warranty.
In either case, you’re going to be waiting while your windshield gets repaired, so why not use that time to shop for a lower rate on your
