I have a 2011 Cayenne S, I am on the second replacement windshield. All of them have been factory Porsche, not aftermarket. I keep getting stone chips that cannot be repaired. Does anyone lese have this problem. All the chips occur on the highway and the stone will come from a vehicle in front. I don't follow too close to the vehicles in front of me, but it seems like anything that hits the windshield will chip it. I have had somewhere around 46 vehicles in the past 30 years. This is the first vehicle I have ever had to replace a windshierld and now I am on number three in 10 months. I love the vehicle but I don't know if I should complain to Porsche dealer. They are doing the windshield replacement and it is a reasonable price.

Any input is appreciated.

First week of ownership with the Cayenne and I received three stone chips but all were repairable. I have heard the German glass is softer then other but have no proof of that. Perhaps try an aftermarket glass to see how it weathers the storm.

I do replace my windshield frequently on both of my Porsches, but I think it's due to the fact that I live in the mountains and they use gravel here in winter conditions. There's gravel everywhere. In the spring this year, I had to have a new windshield in the Cayenne, the Carrera and my son's 2012 Subaru that was less than 24 hours after we bought it!

When we lived in the midwest, I never had the issue. My original Cayenne windshield lasted for 8 years.
