Does the Honda warranty cover windshield cracks?

I was driving down a side street when a rock flew up and cracked my brand-new Honda Accord’s windshield! My 3-year warranty is still active, but I’m worried it won’t cover this. Does the Honda warranty cover windshield cracks?

Our sympathy goes out to you and your Honda Accord’s windshield—what rotten luck!
Unfortunately, Honda’s 3-year bumper-to-bumper warranty does not cover windshield cracks unless the damage was caused by a flaw in the windshield’s manufacturing and design. In fact, dealers may even trace the crack to find the rock’s point of impact if you try to say otherwise.
Here are some other things your Honda limited warranty won’t cover:
  • Damage from collisions, misuse, or acts of nature
  • Normal wear and tear
  • Repairs or replacements resulting from lack of maintenance
That said, if you carry comprehensive coverage in your car insurance policy, windshield chips and cracks caused by road debris (a non-collision force) are covered. Therefore, there is still a chance that you won’t have to foot that $500 windshield replacement bill totally on your own.
