05 vibe.
just got a new windshield installed, (New Orleans area) $155. plus tax.

some places wanted as much as $274. plus tax.

It pays to shop around.

Nice!

A brand new windshield always feels weird for a while- until you get used to not having to look through all the pits and chips! :lol:

Hopefully the replacement windshield is IDENTICAL to the original one. My sons 2009 needed a new windshield and the SafeLite shop that replaced it put in something that is NOT the exact shape of the original OEM windshield. Very slight curvature differences which he notices when the windshield wipers are on. Not a real big deal but definitely a nuisance from time to time depending on how light/heavy the rain is falling!

That's a good deal! I was expecting much more than that. Thinking about how much it might cost kept me from calling around, but perhaps I need to make some calls.

Who is the manufacturer of your new windshield if you don't mind me asking?

I'm sure you would like to know the manufacturer of the windshield from the original post BUT for what it's worth, here's the one on my son's 2009 Vibe

That's about the same price I found for my Vibe a few years back. It's great what you can find when you shop around.
