I'm hoping Scotty, Eric, or Anna will be able to chime in and tell me if this quote sounds reasonable or not.
I had a weak moment yesterday and let my girlfriend drive my car (first mistake I made) to the local Sam's Club. We were just about to pull into the parking lot when I heard a loud noise. I look up just in time to see the rear tires on the passenger side of the Wal-Mart/Sam's Club tractor trailer up on the curb as he cut the corner too sharp and kicked up some rocks. Well, one of those rocks decided to jump over the car in front of us and hit the passenger side of my windshield, causing pretty substantial damage. We pulled in behind him and waited for him to park before I confronted him. He was oblivious (or at least pretended to be) to the fact that he hit the curb with his rear tires. I asked him to follow me to the corner of the curb and even after seeing the fresh damage, he still claimed that he didn't hit it. We took a walk to the rear tires of his trailer and found that the two outer tires on the passenger side were both blown, much to his "surprise." We exchanged information and on I went.
I took my car in to the dealership today to get a quote for the windshield to be replaced and it came to $971.43! I'm not paying a penny of this, but I still found that quote shocking. $809.43 was for the actual windshield and the rest was labor and taxes.
Does a windshield for these cars really cost $809? or is the dealership trying to get the most out of the insurance company?
