      I am on my confirmed third windshield.

      The reason I say confirmed:

      X was bought off Police department in 1996, had a Non-factory shield, which would make it #2 at the minimum.

      It was cracked at the time, and just this year I finally replaced it, so that is #3.

      I've only replaced mine once. It didn't have the factory windsheild when I bought it in 2002, so it's on at least its third.

      Mine is on its second in 12 years and 210K miles. It does have a few small rock chips in it but they have been there for a couple years and haven't carcked so I just ignore them.

      I am on my 4th windshield. My last replacement was 10/2004 at which point I restored the windshield lip which had been leaking. This can be seen in my Leaky windshield repair/restoration thead.

      Chipped twice. Replaced once. $125.

      First one was almost out of sight. The second is right smack in front of the driver's sight.

      None but I got a little chip over on the far passenger side that looks like it's spreading. Has anybody else used one of those winshield repair kits? It has a syringe looking thing in it and supposedly seals up the and prevents it from spreading. Well, I used one of those on it and it looked dramatically better after, like it had actually sealed up the . Well, a few months later, it looks like it's spreading again, so I don't know whether I should try the repair kit again or just wait for it to spread more and replace the whole thing. What's the average price for winshield replacement?

      My windshield had been replaced when I bought it used in 2000. Since then I have yet to replace a windshield. I do have a few rock chips in the 4 years since, but none appear to be cracking.

      150K with the factory windsheild.

      Why are you guys replacing them 3 and 4 times? Just catching rocks? Or vandilism ?

      All my windshields were due to rock stikes while on the highway. t depends on the road you drive. There are several gravel companies near me that haul & sell crushed stone. You'll see both Large and small trucks picking up loads. Many of these trucks head for the highway and will loose a few stones along their journey waiting to fullfill their destiny with your windshield.

      Pretty much same here - 20K a year of freeway driving with what seems like perpetual construction takes its toll.
