While Driving On I-81 North In Pa, The Inside Layer Of The Windshield Developed A Small Crack At The Bottom Of The Glass. Nothing Hit The Glass. There Are No Chips Or Other Marks. On Monday 2/20/17 I Stopped At The ford Dealership And Spoke With The Manager. Because The Crack Was Inside The Vehicle, And The Outside Layer Was Not Cracked, The Manager Believed It Would Be Covered Under Warranty. The Dealer Took Several Pictures, And Called Me While I Was Driving Home To Ask Me To Come Back So That They Could Take More Pictures Because ford Was Not Satisfied With What The Took. A Day Later They Asked Me To Come To The Dealership Again Because ford Wanted Even More Pictures. On 2/24/17 ford Agreed To Cover The Replacement Under Warranty. Each Day The Crack Has Increased In Length. The Crack Appears To Have Started Near The “new For 2017” Wiper De-icer Element. A Cracking Window Is Not Structurally Sound And Can Most Definitely Put The Driver And Passengers At Risk Of Injury.
