The camera recalibration only took about one hour, but I got the impression that they have done it many times.
This just happen to me also. :-(
Sorry to see that happen to you 332rick
, and your impact happened at a much less speed than mine! And thanks for sharing the pic of the windshield with the serial, what model is your Accord? That's crazy... I do think that the edges are especially fragile for our 2018 Accords... Never had this happen on any of my older vehicles even on the edges, oh well. So both TCFenton1
, about how long did you guys have to wait until the OEM windshield arrived, after talking to your insurance or third-party in terms of ordering?
Definitely get the OEM replacement for the 2.0 Touring. I have Geico as well.
I'm definitely getting the OEM replacement, and I don't even think it's possible at this early point in time for companies to do a third-party glass replacement, so that's kind of a relief. I can't edit the OP, but here's an update on my situation so far:
: In my state since I have comprehensive coverage, nothing should come out of my pocket, including camera recalibration as I have checked with Geico. I also called Honda and they outsource the labor in terms of the windshield replacement, so the dealership gave me the contact info for First Choice Auto Glass (FCAG). I called FCAG and with Geico on the line, and they got my VIN of the car as well but I stressed on OEM replacement. FCAG said they would call me back to confirm, but it's not the end of the week yet, so I'm assuming they have already put in the order for the windshield. Will see what the status is tomorrow on Friday.
As I suspected, the different model windshields will have different serials. I told them to basically order TVA-A3 (Touring Models). Thanks to 332rick
, otherwise I wouldn't have known for certain that different windshields display a different serial number.
So here's what we have so far in terms of OEM Windshields:
- TVA-A1 - has the camera, and ?
- TVA-A2 - no confirmation from anyone yet, has the camera, and ?
- TVA-A3 - Touring, has the camera and rain sensor
