exactly. She needs proof that its a defect and not an outside influence that caused the glass to break. For all we know, she could have been cleaning snow/ice off her car and broke it accidentally and tried to get it covered. if i were her, id just all my insurance company (would be $0 deductible for me) rather than wasting time on tv.

ALL manufactures have warranties for a reason. If the auto manufacturers were to give things away to everyone that had a complaint, we'd be riding bikes due to the companies going bankrupt. i feel bad for the girl, but Ford needs proof its a defect to cover anything (small or big).

I hope she gets the idea to contact her car insurance for hopefully free help.
