Windshield cracked on its own while parked, starting from the center of cowl and crawling up toward the roof line. Honda has a service bulletin out there that recognize this issue ( 12-006 ) for 2009-2010 Honda Fit but will only address the issue if the crack occurred while the car was still under the bumper to bumper 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty (according to Honda dealer). The crack on my car happened few days beyond the warranty period and was not covered. I consider the cracking to be a safety issue as I could feel that the cracked area was trying to bow outward and did not feel safe driving the car at any major speed. I replaced the windshield immediately out-of-pocket. If Honda recognizes that 2009-2010 Honda Fit has windshield crack issues due to misapplied molding or other defects inherent to the car and not due to impact to the windshield, then the repair should be covered regardless of when this cracked occurred.

4 months after purchasing my new car, the windshield cracked. Then, within 10 days, it developed a 2nd crack while I was driving it to Oregon (I live in ca). The first crack began in the bottom center of my windshield, the 2nd crack began at the top center (behind my rear view mirror). After searching the internet, I found several website devoted to this same problem on the same make/model/year as my car from people all over the U.S.
