Your car's windshield is unlike other, more mysterious car parts. Yet it seems to be straightforward in its use, however its value can not be understated.

Many do know that windshields are created of multiple layers of glass. They are created of 3 layers, two outer layers of glass and an inner laminate layer.

The center layer of the windshields are is normally made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple terms, it is a very tough plastic. The vinyl plastic sheet has glue on both sides, adhering to the outer layers of glass. This is the grounds of how laminated safety glass is created. It will stop a windshield from shattering into harmful glass fragments.

Cars that are newly assembled have windshields installed by robots in the factory. This is a tightly controlled and monitored environment. The fit and moulding is remarkably tight. This results from the computerized alignment and the preciseness of the robots. Learn more about North Whitehall glass replacement from your local repair professional.

Windshield FAQ

Are Lincoln Ls 'S Reliable Cars? And Inexpenisve To Repair?
The Year Im Looking For Around 2000-2005. I Like How The Lincoln Ls Look And Im Looking Into Buying One But I Want To Know If They Are Reliable Cars And Not Expensive For Repairs.

Common problem areas.....

Ignition coil failure......8 coils......$35-50 a piece....usually replace the whole enchilada
Heater control valve...$160......about 8 hours labor, too
Window regulator...plastic tabs that hold the window glass snap off and the cable winds around the motor....$166 from Ford....2 hrs labor.

I've had my Lincoln LS V8 for 5 years and done these repairs myself.......and everytime I turn that beast loose on the highway, the cost of repairs is the furthest thing from my mind.

If you get the '03 or later V8, it will have the 280 HP 3.9L....up 28 ponies from the '00-'02's

How Much Is It To Fix A Cracked Winshield?
Mines Cracked Veryy Bad N Also A Dent In It . Pls Help

It completely depends on the make of the car. I have seen some windshields that are just over $100 dollars to replace all the way up to windshields that are almost $1,000 to replace. If your windshield is cracked and dented it will need to be replaced.

You can get an instant quote from safelite.com to find out how much it will cost for your car.

How Much Does It Cost To Charge A Electric Car?

There are several factors that combine to give you the cost of charging your electric car. 1. How much you drive. 2. The cost of the electricity. 3. The efficiency of the vehicle. 4. The ability of the driver. 5. The type of driving. However the EPA combines these numbers to give you information on the sticker of every new electric car to estimate what you might expect to pay for electricity for a year and how this compares with driving a petrol vehicle. They also give you some idea of the vehicle efficiency stated in terms of kWh consumed for 100 miles. (Divide by 100 to get kWh / mile.)1

1. How much you drive can vary a great deal from one person to another. The US average is about 12500 miles or about 34.25 miles per day. With any vehicle the more you drive the more it will cost. On the EPA site they appear to be using 15000 miles for the annual cost. You can personalize this on the site. (see #3 below)

2. The cost of electricity will vary not only in its price but how it is determined. Price will vary with the location. Some utilities ask for higher prices than others. Some customers may be paying commercial rates while others pay residential rates. Some may be charging their vehicle at off peak times with as much as a 50% rate reduction.

Some may charge their vehicles at a public charging station which usually adds a premium to utility pricing. Some may charge at a store or work for "free." Battery leasing is becoming more popular and while the cost of owning the vehicle will be lower the cost of operating the vehicle will increase when you add in the lease for the batteries. Similarly home solar panels might reduce the cost of electricity to zero but the cost of the solar panels could be amortized over the number of miles driven for a similar number. What we often do is use an average of utility prices in doing calculations. Were more exact information is not known the US average is now: 11.61 cents per kWh. http://www.eia.gov/electricity/monthly/e...

3. Vehicle efficiency is given by the EPA stickers Here is a representative sample: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/PowerSear... EPA cost estimates per year for most electric vehicles is in the $500 to $600 range which is 1/2 to 1/6 other petrol vehicles.

4. Drivers vary in their ability to drive efficiently. Some of us have a lead foot and use "jack rabbit starts" while others refine their ability to save money. Most users of electric vehicles say that the vehicle instrumentation favors a re education towards economy. But using the torque of an electric motor can be just too much fun to resist. The EPA tries to give us an average in their estimates. Some have refined their driving ability using hypermiling techniques and enormously increase their fuel economy: http://ecomodder.com/forum/EM-hypermilin...

5. Just like the driving distance, how hard the vehicle must work will affect the range. In any vehicle going uphill 20 miles will cost more than doing the same distance downhill. For all vehicles fuel economy drops with a lot of starts and stops. But the electric car has a secret weapon. It uses the stopping to recharge some energy into the battery. This gives the overall appearance of a higher efficiency when traveling in cities. EPA numbers reflect this odd result for electric vehicles.

There are things we can do to make the driving less economical, changing the aerodynamics with a convertible top down or windows open, heat and air conditioning are all examples. In general especially hot or cold weather may effect an EV fuel economy.

What is all comes down to is about 2 to 6 cents per mile for fuel and slightly more if you are amortizing the cost of batteries or other equipment.
