I have about 4-5 little pinpoint dinks on my windshield, maybe from driving on a road under construction or something. I just want to know if my husband is overreacting and possibly lying to me that these little dinks grow into full-fledged cracks in my windshield. Do they? We've had a lot of things break lately, one thing after another, and he's angry about now having to spend money buying me a whole new windshield.
Yes, chips in the glass can spread into large cracks across the whole windshield, but it won't necessarily happen overnight. Also they can be repaired before they spread. And like someone said, it would be more likely to happen in extreme temperature swings (hot air blasting cold glass or cold a/c blowing on a hot window). I grew up driving on gravel roads and have had my share of stone chips. Rather than replacing the whole windshield now, I'd look into repairing the chips and then see what your insurance will cover and save up for the deductible.
