“In general, your car insurance won’t cover general maintenance, so if something’s broken due to normal wear and tear, you’re responsible for the costs of repair.
In the case of a windshield chip, your comprehensive car insurance, if you have it, might cover the cost of a replacement if it’s named in your policy.
Check with your insurance provider to confirm the specifics.”
