    Ugh. Season 1. Oh, the pain! Make it stop!

    Back on topic, in order from most fogging to least fogging:

    (Most fogging)
    1. Recirculate with A/C compressor off.
    2. Outside air with A/C compressor off.
    3. Recirculate with A/C compressor on.
    4. Outside air with A/C compressor on.
    (Least fogging)

    If your windows are fogging up, check that A/C is on, even if you're heating. If that still doesn't work, make sure recirculate isn't on.

    The headlights are just fubared. They should never fog.

    Finally did a testdrive here in Oslo today. Temp was -7C and i noticed halfway that the rear window fogged up completely and then followed by the front window. It went away within seconds by using the defroster, but I have to admit i find it strange that it happened at all. Did not notice if the AC was on since I was so focused on enjoying the way to short ride..

    As a comparison I drove to the tesla store and back in my 2012 VW Tiguan and had no fogging whatsoever in the exact same conditions.

    or

    could be swapped if it is raining, or otherwise very humid outside. My GTI seems to suck in water/humidity when it is raining.

    Really? I've seen no listing for that as an option or its price.

    The last car I bought (a hatchback) showed a cargo area carpeted mat as "standard equipment" in the brochure, but my car was delivered without one. I argued with the dealer for quite a bit and was told that the brochure was "out of date" and that the mat was now an extra-cost option. Never did get the mat. I guess changes like this are kind of "the norm".

    Woo hoo! Freebie for me !!!!

    As for the fogging, left front window does quite often. None now that the temp has dropped, but I expect it to return.

    That's what our DS Ian told us when I asked about it at factory delivery last Sunday (12/9). He said that we'd be able to buy it on the website or at a store "soon".

    Guess they were still in "Sig mode" for the early folks like Evan and they included it.

    My Volt seems to fog up easier than other cars as well. The defroster works well, but uses a lot of energy.

    Cracking the windows 1/2" helps.

    When not running the defrost or A/C, directing air flow to your feet, instead of the windshield, when turning the car on will keep humid air from the ducts from hitting the cold windshield.
