Returned Rental Car With Chipped Windshield In Maryland. Loss Of Use Fees?
I Was Given A Rental Car While My Car Was Being Repaired. On The Day That I Went To Return The Rental Car, A Small Rock Hit The Windshield. It Was On The Driver'S Side So The Rental Company Has To Replace It.
I Know I/My Insurance Will Be Charged For The Windshield (Estimates About $250). However I Saw I Could Be Charged A &Quot;Loss Of Use&Quot; Fee. I Asked Some People And They Said It Is Calculated Based On How Long It Takes To Repair The Rental Car. (They Don'T Know The Exact Formula That Is Industry Standard Though).
What Happens If There Is A Backorder For The Windshield? Will I Be Expected To Pay 2-3 Weeks Worth Of &Quot;Loss Of Use&Quot; Fees For A Delay On A Windshield?
They do have the right to charge a loss of use fee, but it shouldn't be more than a day or two. Windshields are a very common item, and there is no reason for it to be on back order. If your credit card covers the rental insurance it should also pay any loss of use fees too.

Can A Dealer Change The Vin Of A New Car?
My Friend Is Buying A New Car From A Car Dealer. Can Anybody Please Confirm If The Dealer Can Change The Vin? Also, Is The Dealer Supposed To Do The Vin Window Etching? Or, The Buyer Has To Pay For It?
Please Inform Asap.
Thanks In Advance.
The buyer pays for window etching. But don't do it. It's just a money making gimmick for the dealer and it has no affect at all in deterring the car from being stolen. Thieves will garage it, knock out all the glass and have it all replaced within a few hours. And your friend will be out hundreds of dollars while the salesman is counting his spiff (bonus) he made off the sale.
Regarding the VIN ... it is a FEDERAL CRIME to change a VIN. No matter who does it. It's a felony that will have the perpetrator doing hard time in the slammer. If this dealer is suspected of doing that, he'll also lose his sales license forever, lose his business, and will never be able to work in the auto biz once he's released.
How Do I Remove Those Small Nicks Or Cracks On My Car'S Windshield?
If the nicks or cracks have visible damage then they can be repaired. The ones that don't have a blue mark or crack next to them are not. Basically that is what causes the hazy look when you drive into the sun. When it gets to be too much, it's time for a new windshield. Buffing doesn't work, the glass is too hard.
