I originally posted this in Maserati Life but since I'm new here I can't include a link to it. You can find it with pictures if you look for: Stress crack - windshield on my new Levante
Took delivery in early November. Couple of weeks ago went to car in the morning to find cracked windshield. Maserati has approved it for warranty repair. It was clear there was no road debris damage. Should have new glass in next week. I'm hearing this is a known problem but not sure how extensive.
Please reply if you know anything about the issue, how widespread it is, or if you've had the same problem.
Did you by any chance inspect around the entire area the windshield is mounted? Quite possible it wasn't mounted properly and just maybe before that other things were going on, like excessive wind noise, etc.
Hopefully this is just an isolated case and not wide spread.
I took possession of my car end of November. Saturday January 28th, I woke up to my windshield cracked in the same spot as everyone else. How is this happening? Spoke to dealer- J Starr Motors, they said to call them in the morning to get it handled. I hope this will be quickly resolved.
That's really messed up. Maybe the change in temp or something is causing it to stress crack ? Not enough room on either side of it to expand and contract?
It could be there are a run of trucks with improperly fitted windshields which would cause cracks like this to happen under certain conditions. My dealer hasn't seen any issues with this as of yet, but I'm curiously waiting to see if this is isolated to a few trucks, or if this becomes a bigger issue.
Could even be that the body flexes too much causing this to happen and unfortunately with that sort of flex, stress on the windshield is a result of it. But that`s not to say that is whats happening here. Could be anything for all I know, but a possibility.
