    Only OEM windshield for now.

    Rock cracked my 2017 and replaced with Mazda OEM windshield. No aftermarket one's were in stock by any of the vendors . The OEM has been on backorder.

    That sucks. Safelite is a massive improvement on OEM glass.

    Mazda dealer charger the glass installer $402 for it. There are at least 5 different part # for windshields in the 2017-2018 CX-5"s. I do not know what retail would be from the dealer.

    My Mazda OEM part # is KD2W-63-900B.

    My total after their markup and labor , taxes was 628.02.

    His 2015 had a known windshield issue. The 17/18s I have heard so far do not have this pattern of breakage. The 15s and some 16s cracked due to pressure. Not being hit by a rock but got ruptured under stress.

    For your broken one - was the Rock hit pretty significant?

    It made a small star on the edge that did not spread for 2 weeks, until I cleaned and applied Rain-X to it. Did NOT press hard but it spread after that without driving.

    I just went to Safelite's website for Union City Tn and came up with a windshield for 488 bucks.

    I don't know if you have HUD or rain sensors or de-icing, but, yeah. Found one near you.

    I was able to find the windshield online based on the part number provided but it looks like this item cannot be shipped due to the high risk or damage during transit which is a known issue. Here's the page for reference https://www.mazdapartsprime.com/oem/...indshield.html

    Iím still waiting after a week and a half for our glass guy to call back. I suspect he is running into the same issue and the windshield will have to be shipped in.

    No, mine died to a rock chip each time. Went through 2 OEM's. The first OEM lasted me for 3-4mo. The second OEM lasted 2 days. Both were very minor rock hits. The Safelite has been absolutely hammered by rocks, and done great. It isn't install flaw, as Safelite did this one, too. It's shitty product/brittle/thin/something to do with the OEM glass.

    I've had two CX-5's, a 2013, and a 2015. Only problem so far has been (fingers crossed) a star in the lower left corner of the 2015 windshield. Immediately called insurance guy, and got it patched in two days for $50.00. Holding on so far.

    Has anybody here tried the new clear film for the windshield? It is claimed to reduce heat by 43%, and U/V rays, by 99.9%.

    If there is anyone here that has this, kindly give us the details as I would really like to protect my windshield. I dunno "if" *knock on wood* the next broken windshield will make my insurance increase my deductible since it cost more than $1500 CAD for them replaced the last one.

    Pretty sure he's referring to Window Tint.
