“What does it cost to replace a Subaru windshield with EyeSight?
CR says Ted Hine was shocked when the dealership quoted $1,400 for a replacement windshield for his Subaru Forester. The reason it’s so expensive is Subaru uses OEM windshields, and after it’s installed, the EyeSight cameras located on the windshield need to be recalibrated. If there are any distortions on the new glass, EyeSight will not work correctly.
All 2021 Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek, and Ascent SUVs now come standard with EyeSight technology. It will protect you in the event of a crash and decrease the chance of an accident. The downside is, repairs like a windshield replacement will cost you more.”

The benefits of having cameras located on the windshield have proven to increase safety and driver awareness. Unfortunately, those benefits come at a premium in the form of expensive replacements for those windshields. This is why it is important that you check your insurance glass coverage, and specifically, the deductible. It may be worth paying a little more each month to have a low or zero deductible.
