The windshield of a vehicle is considered the third most important safety aspect of the vehicle you are driving. The windshield needs to protect you from incoming objects and you must be able to clearly see out of it as well. Repairing a damaged windshields is quite difficult and it is recommended to purchase an entire new windshield instead of repairing one. You can find windshields in many different locations but you will need to know what to look for in a windshield. If you go into a windshield store with no idea of what you need or want you could end up with a windshield that is not very strong. Of course it mainly depends on where you go to get your windshield. If you go to a popular company you will get a durable windshield. Just remember that if you buy a windshield on the after-market it may be low quality and you could be seriously injured if you have an accident. You will want a windshield that can effectively deflect objects like rocks. If a large enough rock was to hit you new windshield it would probably create a spider-web crack but it will not go through the glass.
