“The average cost to replace a windshield is between $200 and $500, according to our research. We used estimates from sites like RepairPal, secret shopper studies, and additional sources to find this average. The reason for such a wide range is that many variables go into the cost of windshield replacement.
Windshield Replacement Cost Factors
How much it costs to replace your car’s windshield depends on a few factors, including:
Type of vehicle: The make, year, and model of your vehicle determine the cost of the replacement glass used in the repair. It typically costs more to replace windshields for luxury vehicles from BMW and Mercedes-Benz than for more common models from Honda, Chevrolet, and Toyota.
Windshield features: Standard windshields are usually much cheaper to replace than ones equipped with features such as rain sensors and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Newer and luxury cars may have these safety features, increasing the cost to replace a windshield.
Damage: The type of damage to your windshield can affect how difficult it is to remove and replace it. Auto glass with a simple crack will likely be cheaper to replace than glass with more extensive damage.”

Other factors involved in determining the cost of windshield replacement include whether the glass is OEM or aftermarket. Also, of course, is whether the front or rear windshield needs replacement. Fortunately, many insurance companies will cover glass replacement and in some cases even waive the deductible.
