Kia Windshield Replacement

For the most part, auto glass and windshield replacement on a Kia is affordable. The average is about half the cost of a luxury vehicle. The prices can go up depending on the model and part. Usually, the more common the vehicle the cheaper the replacement glass. Also, years when a model changes body-styles.

Another factor of Kia auto glass prices is how often the part is broken. The windshield, Front Driver Door Glass, Front Passenger Door Glass are the most commonly broken windows and usually the cheapest. Followed by Rear Doors and on to Back Glass, Quarter Glass, Vent Glass.

Kia has engineered their vehicles to be friendly to work on. Unlike many cars only the standard windshield replacement tools are needed. In the hands of a skilled auto glass installer a replacement will look and function like it was done on the assembly line. With that being said all models have their little issues.

The Kia Sorento windshield replacement can be a little tricky. In the hands of a professional installer from Abbey Rowe Auto Glass, they will have you back on the road in no time. If your Sorento is outfitted with a heated wiper park area on the windshield the connector wire harness is accessed through the speaker opening on the dash board.

On the Kia Soul the back glass fits extremely tight with an exposed edge. Great caution must used when working on the back glass not to scratch the body.

Kia Windshield Replacement Option:

Kia has packed may safety and convenient features built into the windshields. These options can effect the windshield replacement cost.

Head-up Display- With the customizable display, the key driving information you need is discretely projected onto the windshield in the driver’s line of sight. The full color HUD automatically adjusts its brightness depending on conditions.

Windshield Wiper Park Area- An electric grid embedded in the glass, similar to your rear-window deicer, that runs along the base of the windshield . Its purpose is to warm the area to help keep the wipers free of ice and snow.

Acoustic Interlayer- An additional vinyl layer fused into the windshield that helps reduce road noise, making for a more enjoyable ride.

Lane Departure Warning- using a camera mounted to the windshield the system is designed to alert drivers of unintended lane changes. Audible, visual and haptic warnings are triggered to restore the driver’s attention in cases where the car drifts or changes lanes without using a turn signal.

Automatic rain-sensing wipers– A optical sensor attached to the windshield.  It uses infrared light beamed at a 45-degree angle into the windshield which reflects back — if the glass is wet, less light returns to the sensor, and the windshield wipers wipers turn on.

Condensation Sensor- The sensor ensures that the windows of the vehicle do not fog. It detects moisture on the inside of the windshield and automatically adjusts the climate control to reduce the fogging effect.
