Reading Topic: airbags break windshield?
That sucks. However, it is pretty common for the passenger-side airbag to break the windshield. It is actually the dashboard airbag cover that does the damage. It is hinged on the forward side of the cover and hits the windshield when it swings up and away from the passenger. I've seen this on many different cars.
Airbags have only one purpose: to save lives. And that they do... better the airbag hitting the windshield than somebody's heat!
