I have seen a few posts about Windshields being cheap and fragile. Do you agree? What are your opinions.
If you are referring to me, :nono:I assume keep it. Just because someone does not like one or two parts of the car should not mean get rid of it. Horse-caca. One of my brothers, the rich one has a new Corvette, and he hates the seats and shifter height, yet he loves the car :rice 1:I've eventually had cracked or pitted windshields on most of the cars I've owned. The two worst were a BMW and a Chrysler. People who think the quality of this windshield is worse just don't know what they are talking about. They all have to pass U.S. safety standards. The issue is not the quality of the windshield, but the slope of the both the hood and windshield. In designing the 3, they lengthened the hood and thus made the slope of the windshield less than other cars in the class. So when a rock or other debris hit it, it puts more force on it. This is just basic physics. In addition, given the length of the hood, when something bounces off of the hood, it will still strongly hit the windshield. Hondas, Nissans, and most other modern cars have a more sloping hood.
Perhaps those who constantly complain about the windshield and infotainment system should just buy another car...
Gee, the car causes you so much grief. It's not good for your health. Or do you complain about everything? The Vette is a very nice car, but I do like the Porsches better. The seats are great and the shifter is perfect.If you are referring to me, :nono:I assume keep it. Just because someone does not like one or two parts of the car should not mean get rid of it.

As far as the Infotainment, its almost there, it went from a 2 to a 3.5 Babie stars. :taz: Thats a good start.
You don't have to tailgate to get hit by rocks.... I live in Ontario. We use road salt here. Tailgating will make it worse but it has to do as much with the environment as it does with the driver. A more fragile windsheild won't help thatI've only had 1 chip in one windshield in a car ever. Probably because i do not tailgate. In fact I looked over my 1991 Honda accord that I sold to A friend and can only find a few paint chips in the front and no window chips at all and that car has near 500,000 miles on it. My wife has chips in her paint everywhere and had her windshield replaced in her car due to chips. It has allot to do with how you drive.
Great! You and Babie have your love fest and I'll speak my mind as well. If you, like Babie, have so much to complain about with your new Mazda 3, perhaps you should get rid of yours as well. It is just hard for me to understand why somebody who hates so much of their car wants to keep it and complain about it.RVOLL
This is a forum to chat about good things and not so good things. If you don't like what you read then move along and carry on with your day. So effin annoying. If I or anyone else want to complain about the windshield, infotainment system, the colour of the sky or your twisted attitude that's our prerogative, but I don't think anyone else appreciates your "smart ass" remarks, surly I don't.
So guys, based on what the Physic Smarty Pants has said, the design of the font end has put more force on a piece of crap windshield. #pitting_at_8K :0
P.S. Babie, talk about WHATEVER you want, this is an open forum, no one was forced to sign up nor read something they don't want to read. I enjoy everyones post and don't take offence to anything said. I't's almost as if "certain" people, not going to mention any names "RVOLL" work at Mazda and spent every waking night designing the car....heck, maybe RVOLL designed the infotainment system that keeps EFFING up. LMAO...
Everyone complains about their cars, how about not saying anything to cause more of a commotion.Gee, the car causes you so much grief. It's not good for your health. Or do you complain about everything? The Vette is a very nice car, but I do like the Porsches better. The seats are great and the shifter is perfect.
