   We have a 2013 Energi. We also used to have a 2013 Cmax Hybrid, but recently traded it in for an Edge. This is no real big deal, but it is a bit odd. On our Cmax Energi, the windows fog up when the car is first started and driven in the morning. All cars I have ever driven do this, and it is pretty normal. Just open the windows and/or turn on the defrost. This does not work very well on the Cmax. I drive a 28 mile trek to work every morning. The windows stay fogged almost the entire way. The defrost works, but then the windows fog up quickly when I turn it off. Opening up the windows does nothing. The Cmax Hybrid we owned did the same thing. Our new Edge does not. Every other car I have ever owned does not do this. The other vehicles we have owned would do this briefly, but after driving a few miles we would have clear windows. Has anybody else noticed this?

You could try RainX anti fog.  I used to use it on a car years ago that had that problem and it was very good.  My wife recently complained about the same problem with her car.  I gave the windows a good cleaning and turned down the defrost.  The AC was too cold for the glass and the difference between the outside temp and inside on the glass was causing it to fog up again.

The trouble is that what you want is to run the heat and the A/C at the same time, because you want warm dry air blowing on the glass.  Any idea how to convince our climate system to do that?

    That sounds like a good idea! I may pick up some this weekend. Thank you!
