Windshield Replacement Public Service Announcement from ABARI

This message is for anyone in need of a windshield replacement in their vehicle. If your vehicle is 48 months old or newer, you are entitled to an original manufacturer certified replacement windshield, not an imitation. A safety study found that an improperly replaced windshield can result in significant consequences for the proper functioning of your vehicle, including lane departure warnings and automated accident avoidance systems.

Unfortunately, due to a loopholes in the law that the Auto Body Association of Rhode Island did NOT support, you are entitled to the proper windshield if, and only if, it is replaced at a collision repair facility.

Don’t take chances, ABARI protects consumers. Contact us at 401-467-7575, on our website at www.abari.net, or visit your local collision repair facility if you have any questions or concerns about your windshield replacement.
