I had my first chip in the windshield on the way home from the dealership! I was heartbroken. It was filled and is hardly noticeable now. Then, two weeks later I got another. I think the Rav4's angle of the windshield increases our risks of flying objects hitting it. I drove a 2009 Nissan Rogue for three years with 1 single rock chip to the windshield over that whole time.
The 3M protection films are great for about 2 years. After that, the edges start to fray and gets dirt under them. Also, waxing around the edges is a major pain. I swore them off after having them on a 2007 Infiniti G35. I'm def going to look into the bug guard.
