Driving down the street, heard a loud pop and the windsheld cracked. L shaped crack about 6 in in each direction. About the same way that happened to the other 122 people that filed complaints for Outback windshields cracking.

  • 1,000 miles
Brand new vehicle, parked on the street for approximately one hour. When returning to the car, a crack in the windshield, beginning at the lower center and extending to the middle of the windshield approximately 6 inches was evident. No debris on windshield and no evidence of it being hit with anything. Crack has now extended further up and around (shape of a large question mark) of about 2 ft in length. Contacted local dealers and glass companies for repair but no one has any in stock due to a very large number of these issues. And the projected date for when replacement glass will be available is now July 1 2015, more than 10 weeks since the defect appeared. Given what's been happening, I fully expect this crack to continue to grow and begin to hamper visibility. Web searches have yielded many similar reports of this happening.

  • 850 miles
This is a brand new Subaru outlander with 850 miles. The windshield got a small chip, about 1mm in size near the very top. As I was driving along the windshield started to crack from the small ding down, approximately 1 foot in length. This should not happen with new windshield glass in a new car.
