Post by city_snap on 17th March 2010, 10:46 am

Knowing so many brother n sister have their windscreen crack, I kind of feel lucky for not having such problem, until this morning.
Three big and deep crack line develop at the right side of my windscreen. Sian........

Is this a common problem with all cars or it only happens to Kia cars or the Forte?

It's definitely not a common problem with all cars, but apparently it's been happening to quite a few Fortes.

Now where's that thread which C&C released stating that they'd honour all windscreen cracks of the above said nature for the entire duration of the warranty?

My windscreen goes piak, piak, piak, too. But I wonder if having installed the strut bars in the front and forward half of my car helps. *fingas crossed*

If C&C indeed issued a statement to honour all windscreen cracks, then it should mean KIA would have been informed about it. Hopefully the subsequent batches of Fortes will not have such issues at all!

Maybe it is the coolness that is the problem, mine cracked while sitting pretty at MSCP, cos its a red plate. Cracked when I was not using the car!!! Now heavy rain can also crack it... so that maybe explains why they don't insulate the heat from the centre portion, it is a screen saver...

Mine was solar film installed in JB, but they helped to transplant to the new screen. If you say nicely, and leave the car for 1 day, they might be willing to do more for you... (without tipping or paying)

Bro, your solar film is from CNC Rikecool right ?
Thought they have 5years warranty or something.
I believe can demand CNC to replace it FOC.

imagine cracking only after 3 or 5 years or something and C&c tell u, sorry the coverage period already over...

so its actually kinda of a good thing that it had cracked and definitely can get it replaced with a much better one thumbsup
