Literally 20 minutes of ownership (Brand new vehicle) and i had to drive it from the dealership straight to the glass repair shop.

Moral of the story, windshield replacements are like accidents. They may rarely happen and you can be extremely cautious, but some things are inevitable regardless.
Damn, well, here's knocking on wood at 33 years with no replacements!
