Okay, so this girl at my college tells me that her windsheild got a beating last night from some unknown object thrown at her from a near accident in front of her. I went out there with her to survey the damage/offer my help and info on anything that was broken/damaged. Well, I found out as soon as I got to the lot that she drives a 2002 ZX2.
Anyone know what a windsheild for those cars costs? hers is waaaaay too badly damaged to bother repairing. I just need a general price range, from my experience I was thinking between $200-$300 that sound about right? or too much. Thanks for the help.

I've had to replace the windshield on my 97 Lx 4 times in the past year. I only paid $250 Canadian for each of them, and that was the windshield and the installation. I'm not sure if this helps you out or not. Chances are its a Mazda windshield anyway.

anywho i know around my place i can get one for free going through insurance... there is a company that will pay up to 100 dollars of your deductable... i have a 100 dollar deductable. that price seems right there though.

Theres like Standard Auto Glass here in Canada... not sure if you have something like that where you live. Might be it. The insurance will sometimes still go up though because ur putting in a claim.

It's Ford Glass.... All glass on the Escorts is Ford Glass... The protege isn't the same body as an Escort, it's the Tracer that is... And It's not Mercury Glass for sure.
?? the 91-96 escort/tracer is based off the 90-94 Protege. but as for the ZX2, it's all Ford.

The cheapest way out of it would be to have her call her insurance and let them replace it.

For a windshield, I'd recommend her paying out of her own pocket because of premium increases and the deductable though.

yeah it depends on the cost of the repairs and whether or not they actually end up paying. Went through that with my aunt's insurance company when she tagged my front end. I don't think a windsheild should up her insurance, I just wanted to give her a ballpark cost on it before she ended up starting a claim. Thanks guys!

And James, I thought about that later, just got too lazy to edit the post. hahaha, But I don't think my windshield looks all that much like the 93 Protege I park next to.
