A small crack in the windshield can easily become a major problem for you if you run over a bump in the road or if the windshield is damaged further. Small cracks and chips can be easy to miss, but once you’ve spotted one, it's important to take your vehicle to a specialist. The good news is that if the chip is less than six inches, you should be able to get the windshield repaired rather than replaced. If you have more than three small chips or cracks in the windshield you should consider replacing it. Also if the crack is in the driver’s line of sight, replacing the windshield can be the best option.
