If a repair doesn’t work and you’re paying out of pocket, we’ll deduct the repair cost from the cost your new windshield. If you’ve filed an insurance claim for a repair, we can simply switch the repair to a replacement.
After the repair is complete, you may still see remnants of the damage; this is normal. If, however, the repair distracts you while driving, your insurance (where applicable) will cover a full windshield replacement.
Here at Tri State we like to say, “If it’s got wheels, and if it’s got glass, we can do it.” And that’s no exaggeration.
After 43 years in business, our expert technicians can replace almost any piece of glass on any type of vehicle. Check out some of the examples that we routinely work on.
ADAS means Automated Driver Assistance Systems, and it refers to any type of automated assistance provided by the vehicle to the driver. When an ADAS-equipped vehicle has its windshield removed or replaced, a qualified technician (that’s us!) must properly re-calibrate the system.
While there are many types of ADAS functions, we’ve listed some of the most common ones below.
By 2022, 100% of all new vehicles will be equipped with ADAS features.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control can maintain a chosen velocity and distance between a vehicle and the vehicle ahead. ACC can automatically brake or accelerate with concern to the distance between the vehicle and the vehicle ahead.
Automatic parking fully takes over control of parking functions, including steering, braking, and acceleration, to assist drivers in parking. The vehicle has the ability to position itself safely into the available parking spot.
A collision avoidance system, or pre-crash system, uses small radar detectors, typically placed near the front of the car, to determine the car’s vicinity to nearby obstacles and notify the driver of potential car crash situations.
Lane Departure Warning
A lane departure warning system alerts the driver when they partially merge into a lane without using their turn signals. The system uses cameras to monitor lane markings to determine if the driver begins to drift.
Lane Change Assist
Lane change assistance helps the driver through a safe completion of a lane change by using sensors to scan the vehicle’s surroundings and monitor the driver’s blind spots. The driver is alerted visually and/or audibly.
A rain sensor is a water-sensitive device that automatically triggers electrical actions, such as the raising of open windows and the closing of open convertible tops. It can also automatically control the function of windshield wipers.
To function properly, a vehicle’s cameras, radars and lasers must be in proper alignment. Because these systems are detached during windshield replacement, the vehicle must undergo recalibration when the systems are reconnected.
Calibration guides the vehicle’s computer & ensures these systems are working properly.
When an ADAS-equipped vehicle’s cameras, radars and lasers are displaced – even a few millimeters – they will not give accurate readings. This could cause the vehicle to operate in an unsafe and unreliable manner.
Under normal circumstances, our technicians can handle all your vehicle’s ADAS calibration needs.
