Price Points
2007 Honda Accord

For its recurring Price Points department, AGRR surveyed five major cities in the United States for the windshield replacement on a 2007 Honda Accord (4-door). As usual, the companies were told that insurance will not be involved and the customer wishes to pay for the windshield out of pocket. 

This month, AGRR asked shops to also break out parts and labor. When available, this is noted below. In some cases, shops were not willing to provide the breakdown—or would only include a portion of it—and this is noted accordingly.
