"... so my 2008 Scion xb with the replaced windshield from the mysterious L crack is not part of the settlement? not fair!"
Windshield complaints were solicited in 2006, and there only enough responses from 2006 owners to include in the lawsuit, which was settled after 4 years of litigation in the summer of 2010.
How is that unfair to 2008 owners of the completely different big box? Where were they back in 2006 when we needed them

Where were they back in 2006 you ask?....well, I wasn't driving an 2008 Scion XB so was not aware of the problem that the Toyota dealers act like they never heard of. Just wondering how 2008 drivers are doing with the blind spot on rt side, anything that works well for that? Thanks...and also congrats on 2006'ers winning!

I am justgina and originally started this thread on 8/15/06. I did receive the Bauer vs. Toyota Claim Letter. My car still has the original windshield with the crack all the way across. I refused to replace it. I hope we get something SOON on the replacement windshields. It's been a long 4 years staring at that crack!! LOL

I had the same problem, just paid to have mine fixed, after having problems with toyota. Email: demfazmiclaw.com the class attorney to complain. About not being notified.

Has anyone received their settlement check yet?
I received & completed the initial claim forms a while ago, but haven't heard anything since. The checks were to start going out in Nov.

#251 of 256 Update on windshield
Feb 02, 2011 (6:20 pm)
Update from previous post. I sent in an appeals form to the Bauer v. Toyota Settlement lawyer after the Toyota dealer said he would not replace the windshield because no one told him he had to. I got a letter today telling me that my claim was denied because my Scion had more then 60,000 miles on it. We all know that the mysterious cracking windshields are a design flaw. I don't think the mileage (66,000) on my 2006 XB should be a factor in the decision. I'm just wondering how many more times I'm going to have to replace it.
#252 of 256 Scion Windshield Check?
Feb 03, 2011 (12:06 pm)
I submitted the paperwork to Bauer vs Toyota for my windshield reimbursement the day after I received it. In early January I received a postcard saying my request had been received and if no other information was required, I would receive a check in the future. Two weeks ago, I received a request for the vehicle mileage at the time the windshield was replaced. I filled it out and returned it the same day. The mileage was way under the 60,000 mile limit. I called Bauer vs Toyota today and was informed that the last checks went out today 2/3/11 and no check was issued to me. I was told to call them again next week. Is this whole Bauer vs Toyota a joke? Has anyone received a check? How long do I wait before I just write it off as a waste of my time?
#253 of 256 In the same boat - over 60,000 miles...
Feb 03, 2011 (1:01 pm)
Yep, we are screwed too as we still have the windshield crack that formed well before the 60,000 mile mark yet now our car is at 66,000 miles, so we are out of luck. Looks like we will be replacing it with our won money. I only received the notification that the suit was successful, after our odometer had turned past 60,000. Yet it looks like the suit was 'decided/approved in our favor' much earlier than that; so I think we would have been covered for a replacement if the law firm had really notified us in a timely manner. Frustrated... like many others.

I am the original poster of this thread. The same thing happened to me. They have waited until we are all over the 60,000 mile limit and are now denying our claims. Thanks alot John Eagle Sport City Toyota Scion in Dallas, Texas. I am going to replace my windshield myself and be done with it. Got a quote for $180.00.
