After having the car parked outdoors at a restaurant for an hour, i come back to the windshield cracked starting from the bottle that traveled upwards. At first i thought something may have hit my windshield while i was having lunch, but there was no indication anything had struck the windshield. The crack increased to about 24inch in length. This all happened while the car was parked in a parking lot

THE WINDSHIELD IN THE C7 CorvetteS CRACK FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THIS IS A VERY COMMON OCCURRENCE, AND IT SEEMS THAT GM/CHEVROLET IS COMPLETELY IGNORING IT. SEE MORE INFO HERE: HTTPS://WWW.CORVETTEFORUM.COM/FORUMS/C7-GENERAL-DISCUSSION/3946004-2016-Z06-WINDSHIELD-CRACK-IS-IT-COMMON.HTML A SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH ( CORVETTE WINDSHIELD CRACKS FROM INSIDE ) AND YOU WILL FIND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM. APPARENTLY, THERE IS SOME KIND OF WELDING/MANUFACTURING DEFECT THAT CAUSES RUBBING ON THE INSIDE OF THE WINDSHIELD CAUSING THEM TO CRACK. THIS CAN OBSTRUCT THE VIEW OF THE DRIVER AND IS UNSAFE. MY CAR HAS DONE THE SAME THING. WHEN CONTACTING THE DEALER, WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS NOT A RECALL OR SERVICE BULLETIN AND SO IT WILL BE OUT-OF-POCKET REPAIR AND NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.

The owner programmed a 5 minute idle shut off and did not provide anything for me as the driver to stay warm at night i was driving during winter and traveling to states like wyoming where it reached 23 degrees. He has many things not up to dot regulations with his truck, lot of things are not working and damaged. He also didn't do any type of a pre employment drug test or for any of the other drivers he hired. He threatened not to pay me and withheld my pay on two separate occasions. He stole 800. 00 from my back account for damages to his company truck that i hadn't driven for 3 weeks i and currently taking him to court to get my money back. He has screwed over plenty of drivers and should be shut down.

I have had the windshield cracked three times since the vehicle was delivered 14 months ago. Kia acknowledges the issue but has not provided a true "fix" for the problem and now has indicated they are not responsible for replacements but to contact my insurance carrier. The cracks come immediately following an impact with a rock or debris and spread immediately after impact so the repairs cannot be made. I had my first one replaced using insurance and kia replaced the second one but now refuses responsibility. It is odd they acknowledge the issue initially and say they will provide a remedy one time but do not have any resolution to cure the original problem that the windshields have either a quality or an engineering defect.

My cars infotainment system, which includes the rearview camera, started malfunctioning in early 2019. The infotainment screen (for the clock, radio, gps and rearview camera) was in a reboot loop (constantly rebooting over and over). When the car is put in reverse, the rearview camera works sporadically, including shutting off in the middle of reversing the car. I took the care to the original dealer and (per the service invoice attached), they diagnosed the problem as "cmu failure" which would cost me $1000 (one thousand dollars) to fix. I refused, as i did not think it was appropriate for the cmu to fail roughly four (4) years after purchase. I googled the problem and it's evident that many other mazda owners have experienced the same problem.

Windshield formed a large crack at 2495 miles (approx. 2/15/20) from left bottom corner to center above driver position. Only indicated cause a 1/8 inch shallow scratch. Windshield again cracked, almost identical size and position at 8934 miles (approx. 4/20/21), only indicated damage a small pit at left bottom. Cracks only appeared after sitting overnight in garage---nothing noticed prior. Email with gm at dealer produced no response. Total cost of replacements $979. 10. No damage to windshields of 2 other vehicles driven on the same routes. In my opinion, both windshield marks were extremely minor and should not have produced windshield failure.
