Default Do you guys get condensation on the inside of your windshield?

I've noticed this happens with my car, and it's especially bad when I have it outside in this cold weather. I've got water spots all over the INSIDE of my windshield from the condensation that's been forming on it. Does anyone else get this? I figured it was just because these frameless windows don't seal as well, but if it's a problem it would be good to know.

Could be the dreaded water leak. Check the passenger side floor and fuse box for signs of water leakage.

I get a fine mist on the inside of the rear window. No drops, turning on the ac & rear window defogger clears it right up,but it is definitely on the inside of the glass. I have checked for leaks but did not find any. I am at a loss as to what is causing it.

You might have a leaky heater core, do you smell antifreeze? Kind off a sweet smell?

Be sure you don't have a leak somewhere else as moisture inside the vehicle (i.e., from the documented leak described in the TSB, the noted leak due to clogged firewall drain plugs, or some other water intrusion) will often condense on the inside of the windshield. If you don't have any leaks, then be sure you're not running your ventilation on recirc all the time as this will trap moisture in the vents.

I got this a few weeks ago in my 2010 when we got snow and ice. But no water evident on the interior anywhere... baffling

I noticed the same thing on my wife's gt the other day. It sat outside overnight so the interior was cold, and then we had a quick temperature change warming up outside. Only time I have ever seen it happen. And the car does not leak.

Cough condensation cough
Humidity + temperature difference. Just clean the inside of the window
