Some dickhole smashed out my driver side back window to loot my car (he got jack shit) while I was at work. I don't have comprehensive coverage through geico, so I have to foot the bill. How much should I be prepared to spend? I appreciate any help you guys can offer.

I'm going to go with $225 as an estimate.

I agree with this as you haven't given the "juicy" details, like model and make of car as well as where in the country you are as prices of labor, etc. can vary.

my brother's '02 durango was 135, and his '78 chevy scottsdale was 85. my '93 tbird was 100, and thankfully my 72 mercury and '04 f150 have not had smashed windows for any reason.....yet , so as you can see, year,make,model and were you go will affect price

No clue on price but I remember looking into getting one re-set and re-sealed on a Trans Am I use to have. I looked at the fine print of the paperwork and I caught the part where it basically said when they pull the back window out, if they drop it and break it, its on me and they hold no responsibility for it.

I laughed at em and told em to f' off.

You can get one done for a little over a $100. Just go to a place where they get used windows from a junk yard.

I've gotten my car broken into 3 times... twice were broken windows.

This is why I don't even lock my car: there's nothing I keep in there that's worth as much as what getting a window replaced would cost me.
