Gosh, me too! I was (am) so sick over it. One of the things I enjoyed about buying a '10 was because my '07 ended up having most of the rear interior removed for rear glass replacement and no telling what happened internally when installing the Pilkington aftermarket windshield. I don't remember why I didn't push for an OEM windshield with the "H" logo on it. I don't remember any problems caused by either repair, but I just get that "not so fresh" feeling whenever stuff has to be removed and replaced.Sorry about that Roger. That's two damaged windshields for this meet. I hope that is all the damage we suffer, and that they are able to fix it without complications.
My damage is the size of a quarter. So far, it has not spidered out more than 1/4". If it doesn't get worse this week, I may give that free windshield "repair" a chance. If I have to replace, I hope the dealer has the capability to replace it with an OEM windshield, but I fear they farm out stuff like that. I'll just have to check tomorrow. If I have to pay out of pocket for it (most likely), then I want OEM glass.
Concerning the instinctive feeling about a future Ridgeline, methinks the plant has knowledge of such. I know they were in fear of thrown tomatoes and riots from us, but I suspect they could have worded a response similar to, "We hope there is a future Ridgeline and only sales will determine if there will be, but we currently do not expect one". However, they were good at trying to avoid opinion and stating only the facts they were allowed to, as expected.
