Windshield Cracks/Pops

I have a 2014 Sahara I bought it in September and I'm on my 5th windshield. The initial hit was the last week in November. I know all about the rocks hitting the windshield and the aerodynamics of a Jeep. This is a different issue after the first initial hit which was my fault I was hit on the highway/middle of window and a normal crack appeared. The replacement windshields all made a pop sound and cracked in the middle of the windshield at the bottom of the windshield in the same area all 4 times. Hmmm strange all in same place bottom/middle 2 inch crack always coming from seal on window and then starts traveling. I was not moving when this pop sound occurred. So it is impossible for a rock to have hit me. I was either warming up or stopped at a light. I am so frustrated. But I love me Jeep. I am looking to see if anyone else out there is experiencing what I am. Please let me know.

me too

I also had my windshield crack, starting near the middle and spreading both directions about 2 inches from the dash. Did not get hit by anything, just happened on a sub-zero day a couple weeks ago. I heard it pop and then watched it travel across the windshield. 2013 10A Rubicon.

Does anyone know if this is covered by warranty?

No I have a starter and jeep was warmed up. I was not moving for 3 of the 4 times just parked when it made the pop sound. I have pics of the crack when it started and it looks the same all the cracks.

Hmm. Sounds stress related. Maybe take it to the dealership?
