windshield easily breaks

I love my 2013 Subaru Outback, BUT..I have ANOTHER cracked windshield that needs a total replacement where the costs come out of my pocket! I have not fixed this windshield because it is the second time I have had a large horizontal crack in a four year span.

This is my third new windshield. They seem to crack with very little effort. Shame on you Subaru.
