front windshield passenger side trim flew off front windshield passenger side trim flew off front windshield passenger side trim flew off front windshield passenger side trim flew off

Front windshield passenger side trim flew off my car while driving 65 miles an hour on a 4 lane road. I was able to stop and retrieve the trim. The plastic A clips attached to the car are broken except for 1 out of 8. A piece of the trim that attaches to the A clips stayed on the car. Anything flying off a car at 65 miles an hour on a busy road is dangerous. No other vehicle was hit by the flying trim. Verbal estimate to fix is 600 or more because they have to remove the windshield (per Ford Dealership). Made a complaint to NHTSA. I hope others do so as well. Paid to much for this car for this to happen because of plastic A clips and trim. Ford needs to do a recall. If the trim had hit another car it could have been really bad.
