    This poll asks how your 2016 or later Prius windshield is holding up.

    This thread was created to show a poll only. More discussion on windshield experiences can be found in this ongoing thread:

    i just added a link to the main thread on this topic which suggests there might be.

    All windshields can be damaged, of course. That main thread suggests that the latest generation might be more susceptible to cracks than others.

    I think that the glass was made thinner to save weight, right?

    I bought a used 2016 Prius 2 February of 2016. The windshield had been replaced once before I bought it and I have replaced it twice.

    Subaru's crack easily too. But I guess that figures.

    Got my 2018 Four at the beginning of December and I already had a stone smack the windshield and crack it. Luckily it was just localized and Safelite filled it with whatever it is they use to seal a crack, but still. I was pretty mad. Car was two weeks old. Ugh.

    ‘17 Prime with 42k miles, on my fourth replacement. Of the four cars I've owned, this is the first that's ever had a broken windshield.
