Default Windshield Warranty

Folks,

I was driving on my way to work 2 hours ago when a piece of flying metal rod hit my front windshield. (blame the hidden debris due to snow, and crack is about the size of my palm of hand) Since I have brought it new on July, 2010, my question is would the dealer replace the windshield free of charge with my warranty or would I have to call my insurance? I did a little investigation since I have done it before with my older car, I do not want aftermarket windshield because my old car wiper didn't interact well with the aftermarket windshield and wondering if this possible case would apply to my Mazda3. So tell me, what should I do?

Yeah definitely not going to be covered by the warranty. It would be like asking them to replace under warranty a tire that catastrophically failed...... after being punctured by a knife. Not really the fault of the tire (or windshield) or it's manufacturer.

Even going through insurance you should be able to get an OEM windshield.
