I had a stone hit the windscreen today. When I later turned on the heater, a long crack appeared. It will fail the MOT I am sure. 1 year ago a stone created a crack, and I had to get a replacement windscreen. And no I do not tailgate. I had one broken windscreen in 10 years with my previous car.

Is the windscreen weak, or more susceptible to cracks?

No. You're just unlucky. I got a stone chip within 24 hours of taking delivery of my Up! I had it checked and as it was not an MOT failure I have just left it as is.

Like punctures. You can go 10 years without a puncture, then suddenly you get two in the space of a couple of months.

Just bad luck in my opinion. As
AlanG said, I have had to buy a new tyre on my Up within 3,700 miles. I believe the Windscreens are just the same as any other car. No worse and no better.

Such is Life!!

Go well.
