My Windshield Needs Replacement

Any of you have the Windshield replaced? What aftermarket windshields are used? How did it come out, any have the blue on the top?

buy a windshield. try to go to a reputable shop. make sure they list two different windshields for 03-04 and 05-07, the later ones are thicker.

trifecta dealer for the U.P. and WI. There is no two door ion. Proudly driving one of the last saturns produced before gm killed the brand.

I was going to GM Body Shop/Glass Repair which is part of the dealership. I did not like how the old glass shop i have been going to was doing things. I am waiting until May so it will be warmer out. thanks for the 05-07 info.

My windsheild was replaced before I purchased my 06 and it is a piece of $#@&^! It is thinner and has dips in it and a weird scuff mark that was made by the wiper, I think, but there you go. Since I bought it at a used car dealership, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

I had a PPG replacment on my Jeep Liberty and that does have all the defects you are talking about. Pilkington one i just got on my ion look good no waves in the glass and sits nice and close to the pillars. My PPG on my liberty has gaps by the pillars becase of the glass is crap.

I am surpised no one has had Pilkington replacement windshild. I know Pilkington makes glass for GM.

I had a PPG one put in years ago after taking a rock. No issues with quality. I asked to upgrade and get the anti glare coating (blue on top) and was told that no manufacturer makes one for the Ion.

I used Safelite Auto Glass to do the replacement. They came out and did it at my place of employment. They were quick, clean and no issues with fit, quality or leaks.

Yes correct. Ions have a decal to help block sunlight.
