Windshield cracked from bottom where heater blewout which may have contributed to this problem. One day prior to the incident, there was a snow storm and ice build-up on front windshield. The windshield cracked later on.

This 98 Sienna xle has had the windshield distoration since day one, and the Toyota representative said the company has no intention of fixing it since no one has died. But it casuses excessive eye strain and will one day kill someone. Also the chipping they blame on lead free paint something they said is all ralph naders fault. Yet the design allows for this chipping caused by rocks to be greater but it was not pointed out when I bought the van. They Toyota absolves itself of all problems. It is just a consumer rip off-they want me to pay to repaint and if I want a new windsheila I have to buy one though the distorion is clear on the 98 when you drive and look from right to left. So clear it wears on your eyes. The 99's seem to have distoration but it is not as perceptable when driving as the 98 windshield.
