Your Jiffy Lube®
A gleaming windshield is great, whether you’re looking at it or looking through it. But it’s more than a pretty piece of glass. Windshields are an important safety feature that protects passengers and helps drivers see the road ahead clearly. Do you know what else windshields are?
That makes sense, doesn’t it? You can be on the highway when another car, traveling at high speed, flings a bit of debris from its tire. Or you can find yourself behind a dump truck or some other construction vehicle, and a small rock comes flying your way. Mother Nature can even get into the act, dinging your windshield with hail.
Chips can turn into cracks, so you shouldn’t put this maintenance off. Clear vision through your windshield is crucial, so visit Jiffy Lube® at your earliest convenience for windshield crack repair.
Typically, chips no larger than a quarter can be fixed, and damage that measures no longer than 6” are usually windshield cracks that can be repaired. Here’s what to expect when you bring your vehicle to one of the more than 2,000 Jiffy Lube locations across the U.S and Canada.
Most insurance companies will cover repairs like this, free of charge. (That’s how important your windshield is to safe driving!)
Hopefully the Jiffy Lube® technician will report that your minor windshield cracks can be repaired easily. But sometimes — like when the crack is longer than 6” or if it’s located close to the edge — repairing a windshield may not be the best option. Replacing it is. Here’s why: your windshield helps protect the structural integrity of your vehicle. In addition to coming between you and the wind and rain, your windshield performs important safety features, like protecting your front-seat passenger in the event of an airbag deployment. Rather than risk driving around with a compromised windshield, a replacement is in order.
It’s important that you choose a service facility that follows AGSC (Auto Glass Safety Council) procedures. The AGSC is a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the safe repair and replacement of auto glass, especially windshields.
You’ve selected a glass repair facility. Now what?
If a forward-facing camera is part of your vehicle’s safety system, it will be recalibrated. That way, you can be confident that your ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Safety) system works, including the automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and lane keep assist.
We’ve already explained how trained technicians will efficiently handle windshield cracks that can be repaired. Jiffy Lube® also offers a special windshield treatment that will help increase visibility, even in the wettest weather. Your wipers will glide across the glass! Ask for details next time you bring your car in for a Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change.
