SafeLite uses substandard glass. NOT OEM quality. Thinner. Thinner is weaker. It's cheaper. That's why the ins. co. wants to use it.
I had the windshield on my Silverado replaced twice. Once with Safelite, the last time with GM glass. The safelite people didn't even replace the window properly. I didn't find out until I had another glass co replace it with OEM glass. They fixed it right, and showed me the difference in the glass.
Safelite is a ripoff.
When I had a rock crack the glass in my Camaro, my ins co wanted me to use them, and I said no, I wanted OEM. I paid the difference and got OEM, and had it done RIGHT, replaced using OEM parts and OEM process.
Do it right.
