26 PostsI was driving down the road about 3 weeks ago, very windy day. I saw an object fly towards me, no idea what it was or from where....all of a sudden I had small round shaped multiple cracks in my windshield...driver lower corner....I pulled over and looked around, I was under a walnut tree. So it appears that a walnut blew out of the tree and cracked my windshield, which has now continued to break along half the distance of windshield. I’ve been waiting to see what pans out with my transmission before I pay for new windshield....I’m speaking to SOA about getting rid of the Ascent due to multiple transmission issues. No sense turning in insurance windshield claim if I am not keeping the car . Moral of the story is that I’ve never had a windshield crack from driving under a walnut tree!

I had a similar windshield crack with a new ascent less than 1000 miles within a month of getting it. Since i travel highway i assumed that it might have been hit by a rock from trucks. Now seeing others posts it looks like it has to do with the product itself. Mine very similar to @Sgodett. A small chip behind the wiper blade on the passenger side. It was not easily noticeable from inside the car. Got the windshield replaced in Subaru dealership. Now after 2 weeks of windshield replacement i had water sloshing underneath the driver seat area and is still not being diagnosed by the dealership. I have raised the issue with SOA as well.Anglo2000 said:
I wonder about the windshield, parked at work, no extreme temperatures. Four hours later twelve inch crack appeared then the next morning it was most of the way across the windshield. Dealer insisted it was a rock chip in the lower part of the windshield behind the hood but an odd place for that to happen. Needless to say I never noticed anything hit the car.
@Robert.Mauro Do you think this as a rare coincidence or some issue with Ascent manufacturing?
