Is There a Problem with the Windshields Cracking in the Genesis GV70?
There do seem to be widespread problems with the windshields of the 2022 Genesis GV70 luxury SUV. Many owners report that the tiniest pebble hits produce huge cracks. A few say that their windshield glass has cracked spontaneously without anything hitting it.
Most say they have to wait for weeks, or even months because there is a shortage of GV70 windshields.
Manufactured in the U.S. at Hyundai’s Alabama plant since December 2022, the 2022 GV70 attracted its first complaint to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the end of March 2022. The first complaint about the electric SUV’s windshield cracking was made in April 2022.
There are also ongoing conversations on several Genesis forums about cracked windshields. Many owners of the 2021 and 2022 Genesis GV80 report the same problems.
What Windshield Problems are Genesis GV70 Owners Experiencing?
Multiple owners of Genesis GV70 electric vehicles are complaining about the damage caused to their windshields with minimum impact. Even the smallest “rock” causes major damage that demands the full windshield must be replaced.
This causes a supplementary issue because GV70 windshields are on backorder for dealerships in many states.
NHTSA GV70 Windshield Complaints
The Ohio owner of a new Genesis GV70 states: “The front windshield of the car is not sturdy. I have (had) two road trips and a small stone hit the front windshield and is easily chipped. I have (had) two experiences with this kind of incident.”
The complaint continues that the speed the SUV was traveling was “within normal range,” and the second incident was city driving.
GV70 Windshield Forum Comments
The owner of a new GV70 posted on the Genesis Owners Forum on May 9, 2022 that he got his first “rock chip” that day. He asks: “Anyone else have problems with their windshields chipping easy?”
The owner of a 2023 GV70 responded saying: “I wondered about that because I test drove 2 cars and saw 1 used GV70 – and all had at least 2 rock chips in the windshields. All 3 of them… that seems really strange for vehicles that aren’t even a full year old yet…”
In response to this comment, the Canadian owner of a 2022 GV70 says: “I’m on a few other lists and chips/crack issues are mentioned frequently. A family member bought a new G70 and within a month, rock chip. City driving.”
In another thread, the owner of a 2022 GV70 says: “At just under 1k miles, my GV70 got hit by a pebble… twice, on the same day. One of the chips turned into a 3-inch crack right away and the other one is still a chip. I ordered (an) OEM replacement via dealership but it won’t get in until mid-February. Any suggestions on what I can do in the meantime to prevent them from getting any worse?”
The Florida owner of a GV70 has had enough, as this comment shows. “What the heck Genesis?? Chipped windshield with less than 7,000 miles on the car and chipped paint on the front from normal driving on I-95 in Florida. I don’t ever recall a car’s windshield and paint chipping so easy and so quickly after purchase. Only variable in 40 years, it’s my 1st foreign car. Might be my last.”
What Do GV70 Owners Think the Problem Is?
Some owners maintain that “every manufacturer is trying to save money by doing thinner and thinner windshields, as everybody complains of easier cracks.”
The owner of a GV70 in GV Forums from California states: “My chipped, then cracked GV70 windshield replacement including labor covered by insurance 100% came to $1347 with SafeLite Glass, part of Connect Insurance or Costco Insurance.
“Installer told me the front glass is actually three pieces, top and bottom layers are glass. There is the middle layer which is resin or some other material. I think this all has to do with the cameras and sensors.
“Back in the 90s, a large rock hit my Altima, super loud; it survived without a scratch. Last few cars, a 328i and RDX and this GV70, all cracked with tiny fragments, so tiny in fact all I heard is like a tiny grain of rice hitting the glass. Also repair attempts are no longer good, like the old cars with solid glass. I think these layers are the cause.”
