Geico - Safelite Glass -XYG Glass Company Dangerous Worthless Cheap windshields from China Los Angeles California
*Consumer Suggestion: Don't blame Geico
*Author of original report: Letter sent to Parent company of XYG Glass...
*Author of original report: UPDATE on Geico/Safelite and the use of XYG Windshields(Crap from China)...
The Gentleman from Safelite removed the OEM windshield in a timely manner.While the new unit was sitting on the stand I noticed the corner said it was made by "XYG" a chinese manufacture.If you google the DOT #563 you will see how many people have been screwed by XYG! This new windshield is cloudy when under 70 degrees! The distortion is VERY bad, if you look at dots on the road they are all over the place.In cool weather you MUST run the defogger/heater all the time or it clouds up.Wiping it with a cloth on the inside does not help,running the wipers wont clear it either.I checked the breakdown on the paperwork, this windshield cost GEICO a whopping $93.45!!
It's no wonder it's a piece of crap! I am now trying to get GEICO to have it replaced with a REAL/OEM windshield thru Ford.
DO NOT ACCEPT XYG PRODUCTS!!! Safelite sells them a lot and they are no bargain at all!I don't know yet if GEICO knows about this crappy/shoddy/dangerous practice yet but they are going to by today.How SAFELITE can sell this garbage is beyond me.
I will be happy to post a followup to this and I really hope that GEICO will do the right thing and have a OEM windshield installed.If GEICO doesnt, we will cancel them and find another insurance company to insure our 3 cars and 2 motorcycles SAFELITE should not use such substandard products in repairing cars, especially when it concerns YOUR personal safety.
