Windshield Cracking

Wondering if anyone else out there is having a problem with their 2011 Sienna's windshield cracking??? We bought ours in May 2010 and had a major crack within 4 weeks. Got it replaced and another major crack in almost the same exact area just five months later. I am beginning to think there is a design flaw with the new front end. Love everything else about it, just can't afford to replace a windshield 3-4 times a year, especially since they are heated.

Wouldn't that be covered under the warranty? Maybe not if it was caused by a rock, but a stress crack?

We just bought a new 2011 Sienna XLE. The next day after delivery of the new minivan, my wife drove the car from Indy to Iowa and called to tell me the windshield had cracked.

There is obviously a serious defect here.

One day old car? Dealer should definitely take care of this one.

I have three cracks in separate places on my Toyota Sienna 2013 front Windshield. One crack I can understand, but 3! I feel as is there is a defect in their glass, has there ever been a recall?

Bought our Sienna LE 5 weeks ago. Same cracked windshield... started just under the windshield wipers. Thinking when they took the car off the truck or when then washed it before we picked it up. Clearly a flaw somewhere. Reported it to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration) via Safercar.gov
Calling Toyota again tomorrow - TOYOTA Customer Care at 800-331-4331

Local dealership said to "bring it in for evaluation, but not covered by warranty" (less than 800 miles on the car. Really?????

My Toyota Sienna '08 had a problem with a cracked front windshield. On a mildly cold winter day (35-40 F), I turned on the defrost and shortly after, the front windshield cracked under the wipers for the entire width of the windshield (passenger side to drivers).

I sympathize with other individuals on this thread who were denied warranty replacement for a problem that seems to be directly related to the manufacturer not operator error. Clearly, I have no claim via a warranty issue. I called Toyota to ask after any p[possible recall on cracked windshields.
No luck there. Good luck with this problem.
