windshield cracked

4th time is the charm, after warming my car up I'm backing up my driveway and hear the traditional click..that's when I cringed and looked at the passenger side of the windshield and sure enough there it is a 16" crack and this time it will need to be replaced (see photo). there is no way you can tell me that this windshield is/was not defective from the factory, after 3 previous chips I no longer believe it is bad luck. I'm afraid to call Subaru after the last adventure calling them, so I guess I will have to pony up and pay for a new one which I estimate will cost about $600.00.

Update from Mar 10, 2020: I wish to thank Subaru for replacing my windshield under warranty and even providing a rental. Great to see a company stands by its product, no wonder they can't build them fast enough my 2nd in 3 years.
