Toyota Prius - Windshields past and future

Is the 2018 Prius windshield the same as the 2917 windshield? I had less than 5,000 miles on my break Prius when a small rock from passing truck dinged the windshield. The nick was small, looked like a little smaller than a pea sized asterisk. While driving back from Phoenix to Seattle, the nick turned into a crack covering 3/4th the way across the entire windshield. I drained my previous 2008 Prius for over nine years with plenty of tiny rock bouncing off the windshield with cracking. I found the issue of problem with 2017 Prius windshields possibly being defective. Are the 3027 & 2018 windshields the same? Is there a class action lawsuit filed regarding defective windshields for 2017 & 2018 Prouses?

For crying out loud , have you never heard of proof reading what you write ? Just call your insurance and have the windshield replaced.

No, the 2917 uses transparent aluminum.

We won’t know until the 3027 comes out, rumor has it that it will be made of transparent carbon fiber.


No need for Windows in 2037. We just go to the transporter room.
