2006 Scion xB XB 1.6 from North America
Costly, I can't afford 6-10 Windshields Yearly
WINDSHIELD bought the XB December 2006,I have replaced 2 Windshields,3rd one is cracked already,In addition the Transmission shifts very hard.
Windshield replacement is the best reason not to buy an XB if you enjoy spending money on windshields then buy an XB.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I don't know what you're doing to break these windshields. I drive to work on some of the worst crumbling concrete highways I've ever seen in any state or country. I've got chips all along the hood from the rocks. Never a broken windshield.
Possibly a crooked body twisting the window?

I've had my xB since May 2006, and only just last months have I had an issue with the windshield; it got a hairline fracture, from temperature changes. Was traveling from Florida to central NY. Freak crack too, started under the seal on the driver side. Florida insurance covered this. I used to drive 1hr daily to work, behind rock haulers, never got a crack, even when they did hit my windshield... my advice, don't tailgate.

Did you ever think to drop your comprehensive insurance to a $0 deductible?!? Insurance will pay for it every time. The previous owner of my XB said the same thing about the windshield cracking. The only time it happened to me in the year of owning it was because my foot went through it!
