Foggy windows

The TourX does seem to fog inside of windows in certain situations more easily than some vehicles I've had, but I've gotten used to adjusting climate control accordingly - before I know it's prone to happening. To me, it's another (small) quirk of this vehicle. This thing is a bit unique, one of the big reasons we really like the TourX

Correct, I usually don't use the auto setting. Let's see if I can remember, it's become kinda my own auto-response when driving the TourX.

I run air flow to windshield, panel (and sometimes floor too), and the compressor (AC) on. Set temperature and fan as needed. I also just tried a new interior glass cleaner that supposedly has anti-fog in it (too soon to report any results on that). I clean windows often, partly because the small contaminant particles on glass facilitates accumulation of water vapor (fog) - I also like the windows to be very clean.

Yep mine does this as well.
I’ve never had a vehicle fog up so fast.
I’ve tried all the settings. Running it all out on high seems to be the only solution?

I think the bigger question is what are you all doing in your cars to fog up the windows so much?
Hot meal in the middle of winter may do it. :LOL:

Edit:
Now that I think about it, the piping hot pizza carry out on a rainy day did that too.

My wife thought the heater core was leaking.
But there was no odor or loss of fluid?

At one time, I thought I had the dreaded rear hatch leak, and the moisture from it was causing the fogginess. After tearing things apart and finding nothing out of sorts, I gave up and began using the AC and turning off recirc. First car I’ve ever had that was this tempermental about climate control. If it didn’t have so many other redeeming qualities, it’d be on its way to Carvana by now.
