Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek & Kia Telluride Broken or Cracked Windshield
Do you own or lease a Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek or Kia Telluride and have experienced a broken windshield or one that easily cracks? If so, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
Multiple complaints have been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about broken or easy-to-crack windshields on the Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek and the New 2019-2020 Kia Telluride. In all models, it has been stated that cracks tend to worsen quickly and can lead to an entire replacement of the windshield.
Reported by Kia Telluride user on the NHTSA website “driving down the 35 mph part of hwy 130 yesterday, a lone car passed going the other direction. I heard a small “smack” of a small rock hitting my windshield. I looked at it 3 minutes later, and it was about the size of a dime. I resumed driving and arrived at my destination. Came out 1 hour later, and the crack had spread by 4-5 inches. Temperature was 65 degrees. This windshield seems extremely fragile. Now i’ve called to get a replacement – they are only available through dealers and cost $750. Will the new ones be more durable?”

Reported by Subaru Forester user on the NHTSA website “I’ve had my 2018 forester for just one year and two windshields have cracked from minor rock strikes. The factory windshield was replaced at 11,670 miles on 12/17/2018 and was replaced with subaru oem glass. Now at 24,000 miles the replacement windshield has cracked from a minor rock strike. I was driving the vehicle when a car passed me. The sound of the rock strike was barely noticeable and i didn’t notice the damage until my passenger pointed it out to me. Subaru windshields are too fragile and break easily which is a safety risk.”
