Pebble/stone crack on windshield...

It's less than the size of a quarter. Should I get it replaced or fixed? Can anyone recommend a good place in NoCal? Sorry if it's been asked before, the search engine is down.

I suggest have it fixed - You can buy a kit in auto store to fix it for like 10$-20$, but call some local auto shop to see how much they charge to fix it professionally.

I'd have it fixed by a good glass shop. It's never quite the same when they replace the windshield.

Insurance probably covers it 100%

I had a similar issue on another car. It turned out that my insurance company pointed us to a shop who sent a repair man to our house to check it, determined it could be fixed (vs replaced), and thus the insurance covered it at 100%.

The problem with the fix (vs replace) is that it definitely wasn't perfect afterwards. The chip was dead center in the drivers view, and after the repair looked like a bit of a dirty spot on the window. Of course, replacing the window also has risks.

One thing for sure... If you leave the chip/crack, it will spread -- especially when the weather turns cold!
