I've had my TSX for about 3 weeks now and I notice scratches in my windshield. You can only notice them in direct sunlight from inside the car but it is really annoying since it's a brand new car. I think the scratches are from my wipers because they follow the path of wiper. I guess my question is has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there any way to get the scratches out or fill them in.

Thanks for the help.

If they're caused by your wiper blades, there's nothing you can really do about it. Neither is it a warranty issue. Abrasion from usage caused those scratches.

Try Rain-X next time, wiper free operation. Once you apply that, you'd never look back. I've never used my wiper on the CL9, not once even after owning the car for 12 months and driving in all sorts of weather conditions minus snow.

I have had no such problem with mine. Sorry to hear about it.

A rock actually hit my winshield this past weekend & left a small dent. I called around & guess how much a new windshield runs: $475.

I would call it wear and tear if I had the car for a year or so but I dont even have 500 miles on it and I probably used my wipers twice. I wouldn't think the windshield should scratch this soon. I called the dealership and they said to bring it in. I'll update everyone with the outcome.

If they replace it (hopefully), it'd definitely be out of goodwill gesture.

When small pebbles, rock, debris or sand gets caught on the blades and you flick it active ... It will damage the glass. Just something common though not many pay much attention until it's serious enough.
