My interior windows are fogging up...why?

Fellow 300 owners,

I just purchased my 2006 300 a couple of months ago. Until recently, I hadn't driven my car in the rain. I have been noticing that when I get into my car in the morning, the inside windows are fogged up (moisture). The defroster eventually gets rid of most of the fog, but this is a new car and shouldn't be happening...right? The windows and doors are closed and no obvious leaks. Any suggestions?

Have you tried cleaning them? I know dust and dirt can trap some moisture and maybe cause this...

I tend to have problems with fog often, but I'm pretty sure I know exactly what the issue is On a more serious note while I'm driving the car, I also come across this. I have the auto climate controls, and for the most part that gets rid of the fog but it seems my 300 has two options; monsoon or desert. If the windows aren't fogging my eyes are bone dry from the lack of moisture. Maybe on my next trip to the dealer I'll see what they have to say. Any update on what could cause this keep us posted, you're not alone on this one.

Since when does the age of the car dictate whether or not the windows fog up?

You have excessive moisture in your car, use the defrost and open your windows from time to time to get rid of the moisture and don't use recirculate on damp days, only dry days.

Also, knock your boots off if you are in a snowy area, melting snow in the foot area is where most of the moisture comes from.

I think you all are breathing to heavy...

My car doesn't stay fogged up I just turn the defrost on. If it doesn't clear up fairly quick try turning the a/c on usually does the trick at least in my other cars it worked. Something about have to get the inside of windshield to the same temp as the outside is what someone told me a long time ago...

I did it and it worked go figure.

If i may, i might recommend a solution and not a 'post fix' as such. Try first to check some vendor sites but i recently purchased a product to combat this exact product and has worked wonderfully (from a local car product store). I think the product coats the inside of windows so moisture will not adhere. From memory (don't have the bottle here its called "RainX") or something similar i had the same problem with fogging on cold mornings so anyone should give that a shot as it was only ~$10 and from the amount i used would last FOREVER and in any car.
Anyway hope this helps!
