I was in a rear end collision. I was hit straight on from behind. I am not sure but I think the collision loosened the rear windshield on both sides for about a four to six inch length. The dealership claims the car was built like that. I never noticed the gap before until the accident.
My question is, they are stating it would not be in my best interest to have the wind shield removed an re-sealed. Please let me know if you agree. They state the possibility of additional damage is greater in the removal and replacement-i.E. Broken glass, a worse alignment, a potential of several leaks. They also advised that the seals are permanent and if no glass broke during the accident, there should not be the potential for glass breaking now. Do you agree?
The vehicle which hit me was a huge land rover which majorly damaged the bumper, took out a panel but surprisingly all the inside parts to the bumper are intact. The force with which I was hit was significant-it was not a simple tap. Pretty sure she was moving when she hit me and not stopped behind me and just starting due to the traffic light going green.
I have a six year loan on the vehicle and do not plan on getting rid of it any time soon so I want it repaired. (I bought it used-four months ago).
have the same problem?
