I got a quote from a well known company (...lite) to replace my Honda Insight 2012 windshield, $550.- including tax, they come to me (mobile service), takes 1-2 hours.

The size of the windshield is comparable to a Prius windshield.

I would have replaced it a while ago before doing vehicle inspection. I can't pass and uber drive at the moment because of a large crack (about 3.5") and I also don't want the entire windshield to crackle while I'm driving a highway.

Is that a reasonable price?

Please do not pay $550! I got my windshield replaced last year for $200-$250 (I forget). It was from Quality Auto Glass on Aurora. Give them a call and see what they quote you. my windshield looks great, and they got it done in an hour or so.

Don't go anywhere near Safelite. I had a small (3mm) rock chip in my windshield. I phoned a few windshield repair guys who all said to me "don't go anywhere near Safelite; they will F up the repair". Well, I didn't listen. Result - Safelite made the rock chip worse / bigger and the chip now has spider cracks coming out of it into the surrounding glass.

I think the problem with Safelite is that they are growing so fast they are hiring any Tom, Díck or Harry to do the work and they don't know what they are doing.

BTW, $500 for a windshield is ridiculous.
