My front windshield, drivers side window, and rear window all have little bubbles/ripples embedded in the glass. The windshield has them on the driver's side near the bottom, and scattered up the glass. My driver's window has them towards the front of it, and the rear windshield has them towards the bottom, very visible looking in the rearview mirror. When I took my car in for another problem, my service manager noticed the defective windshield right when he sat in the driver's seat, I had never noticed them before, but he didnt notice them anywhere else. Unfortunately I opted not to have the windshield replaced under warranty, since it was too much of a hassle for something I had never noticed, but I didnt know about the defects in the other windows yet. Now, I notice the bubbles/ripples constantly, but I recall my service manager saying something that those kinds of defects are only covered for six months <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> If so, I'm passed the six months. Anyone else have this problem, and do you think they can be replaced under warranty still?thanks

Re: defective glass (s40turbo585)

I believe that they will cover this under warrant, if they give you any trouble pose it as a safety hazard. I would claim that it distorts the view when the sun hits it at an angle, also tell them that you are worried about the strength of the glass.

Re: defective glass (s40turbo585)

i've had to have windshield glass replaced on two vehicles. None of them Volvo's though. Two different installers, and they never got the install right. Leaks, wind noise, and part of the seal got loose during an 80 MPH spurt on the interstate. It started thumping the passenger's side window with great authority. Scared the heck of of the passenger. <p>I know it is reasonable to want a new car to be perfect. However, sometimes you've got to live with a flaw hoping the a worse one doesn't get introduced with the fix. <p>Don't even get me started on a hood paint flaw on a Mazda I once owned!
