    Default Do not use Safelite for Glass replacement



    I had safelite replace my windshield 2 weeks ago. The craftsmanship was not good and then this morning I came out to go to work and had a puddle on my driver side floor mat. Tomorrow they have to replace the entire windshield to fix the leak. I知 supposed to leave for Moab first thing in the morning so that sucks. Save yourself the headache and do not use Safelite. Also they do not use oem glass or moldings which are superior in my opinion.

    Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. But at least it sounds as if they are willing to stand behind their work and fix the problem.
    I would offer as a counter-point that about 4 years ago Safelite replaced two pieces of glass in my Blazer (the 2 large side pieces toward the rear of the truck which are actually major structural components), and it was a great experience in my case. The installer was a obviously very experienced and even took the time to teach me some tricks of the trade while he worked.

    Regarding OEM glass, if you池e getting a $200 windshield it痴 not OEM and everyone is probably buying them from the same place in China. Safelite will do OEM but in Co you値l probably brake it in a couple years anyway.

    Oem glass is not used by most installers.

    Americian Pride Auto Glass- (303) 681-8952ewy is very good at what he does.

    He does our equipment and Auto Glass...
    Equipment glass if much different to install!
