    i get this all the time, some cars are worse than others. it's worst in wintery times because the shines through the glass and warms up the interior like a green house, while the glass stays icy due to the cold air ~ at least that's my theory. My last car, a Lacetti, was awful, i carried a roll of kitchen paper in the footwell, would get about a pint of the glass each day when i left work. got a slica gel crystal bag thing, but it does nothing because, as far as i can tell, it's down to the above condensation issue not moisture in the air itself.

    Use AC and the heater to get rid of condensation.

    +1 for the ac... It takes moisture out of the air so makes a big difference to fogging issues!
