2015 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #3

I purchased a 2015 Toyota Corolla in August 2015. After driving the car for about three days I noticed a very strong wave effect was present in the windshield that spanned the length of the glass from top to bottom and a series of waves with varying width spanned the entire windshield. It appeared as though the thickness of the glass varied. Driving the car caused migraine headaches and it was very difficult to concentrate of the road because of the distortion present on the driver's side. The effect is similar to looking through eyeglasses that are the wrong prescription, or using reader glasses that are too strong. I took the car to the dealership who did see the defect and worked with me to replace it. Upon picking the car up I found the replacement windshield had the same defect but in a different spot. The defect this time was in the center of the glass making it impossible to look into oncoming traffic when trying to make a turn. The car was again returned to the dealer who confirmed the presence of the defect and agreed to yet again replace the windshield. The third replacement windshield is now on the car and although the effect is not as strong as the first two the third windshield also has noticeable waves going through the drivers side and a very obvious rippling effect on the passenger side of the windshield. There appears to be a defect in every windshield that is coming from the manufacturer factory, these have all been oem windshields. It causes headaches, is a distraction when driving due to objects changing shape while driving, and I am concerned that it is also a safety issue if the laminate and glass have not been properly tempered and bonded together, therefore making the windshield weaker in the event of a crash. I believe the asashi glass company is exporting defective windshields to be placed on Corollas.

When driving the Toyota Corolla S 2015 at night and especially when going downhill, half of the windshield is dark horizontally from the middle up. Some drivers and passengers may experience more depending on the height of the person driving or riding in the vehicle. The windshield appears to go completely dark in some cases and is very scary! this is my dads car and he is 67 years old and is scared to drive at night due to this problem. I am 36 years old and at the time I thought it was just him complaining. However, I drove the car tonight 9/9/2015 and it was scary to go downhill, and this problem needs to be addressed very soon before someone gets badly hurt or killed. If you turn the high beams on you do not have this problem. This does not help when you have to turn back off the high beams due to another car coming towards you of course. Another person described it very well on this site https://www-ODI.NHTSA.dot.gov/ having the same problem. The following information was sent in by cullman, al, usa and he or she described it best below: "the low-beam light design on the lens cover cuts off the top view of light at night time. You see light from the ground up but only halfway up. From there you only see darkness. It looks like a half-lit moon beam from the ground up. You only see the bottom half of the trees it is like a straight line drawn between the middle of your view in front of the car. White on the bottom half and black on the top half. I am scared to death to drive my car around curves and lulls in the roads. Your night vision is extremely limited. It is very straining to have to look ahead and at the same time you have to keep two different colors separated."
