Sometimes, the small things on your vehicle can start to go wrong. And although they seem small, they can mean big problems for your car and your wallet. In this article, we will talk about some things that can go awry when it comes to your lights, windshields, and wipers. Let's jump in!
Why does my windshield keep cracking?
When your windshield cracks, it's never a happy sight and can be expensive to replace. Aside from objects hitting your windshield, if you're noticing cracks forming out of what seems to be nowhere, it could be temperature-related.
Depending on the area you live in, extreme temperature changes can cause cracks. For example, if you put a drinking glass in extremely hot water and then place it immediately into ice-cold water, the glass will shatter.
Windshields are made of glass, which means they are susceptible to the same types of damage, even though they are thicker and larger than an everyday drinking glass. In extremely hot or cold weather, try slowly warming up your defroster so that way it doesn't stress the glass.
Even small rocks and pebbles can cause your windshield to get cracked or chipped. Keeping a safe distance from the vehicles around you will help prevent damage like that from happening and help your wallet.
