As noted earlier in the thread a few years back.... this is out-gasing of materials inside the cabin over time.Yes I've noticed the same thing with my 2018 CRV. The windshield always seems cloudy - defrost does seem to clear it up a bit but I feel I shouldn't have to drive around with my defrost constantly on. I haven't cleaned the inside of my windshield because I'm afraid it may make matters worse. I have a couple of friends that have CRVs and are having the same problem. Could this be a factory issue?
Sorry I'm new to this whole posting on a forum thing lol and just noticed this thread is from 2015. Is anyone experiencing an issue with a cloudy windshield more recently? Thanks
The best approach to dealing with this is also described earlier in the thread as well.
The one thing I did not see earlier in the thread (might have just missed it) was a major culprit in the out-gasing is the driver and passengers. As humans enter a warm cabin.. they immediately begin to perspire which provides a range of airborne chemicals that can and will coat the windshield too. Not to mention perfumes, skin lotions, etc... all boiling off at very low temperatures and sticking to the everything.
Personally, having had this issue with cars for many years now, I learned that weekly cleaning with a good window cleaner (one that does not streak) is the best preventative. Note: my CRV is out of the sun most of the time... so results will vary on this. Any way....doing so helps insure it never gets to an annoying level.... and a pain to clean really well.
