My 2005 Prius windshield fogs when it rains and it won't stay clear no matter what I do
My windshield fogs and streaks when it rains. we have tried new wipers and
cleaning the glass and using the defrost with the air on. nothing helps. It is hard
Is the condensation inside the car or outside? Inside, there is too much humidity in the car. I suspect you have a leak somewhere and the carpet and or floor mats are wet.
I use the air conditioning setting all year long. So anytime the outside temperature is above 35°F the a/c compressor is running. This dehumidifies the air coming into the passenger's compartment and prevents window fogging. When using the defroster to defog the windshield the temperature setting needs to be on hot. Are you losing coolant? If so, I'd suspect a leaking heater core. As far as wipers go, get original equipment ones from the dealer. Yes, they're more expensive but they're also much better and last a lot longer. HTH. -Jim
