No this isn't a joke.
I noticed my windows get fogged up so easily. Anyone else have this problem. When I come out to the parking lot, only my windows would be all fogged up while all the others are ok. It gets annoying while driving too. It's either too hot or I can't see. Is there something I can do about this? I know about Fog X or whatever but I think you have to keep reapplying that stuff. I'm looking for a more permanent solution.

It's hard to get a "little" air since the adjustment is with a switch (not like climate control). But seriously, I think something is up with my windows. Even my friends noticed my windows get foggy easily.

yeah, my windows get foggy too. it seems to be a common problem in most honda's. my sisters honda gets foggy. my friends honda get foggy. my other friends honda gets foggy.

just make sure that you don't have the air circulation staying i nthe car, and try not to breathe too hard. i've figured out how to drive my car so that it doesn't fog up anymore.

One word:

Rain-X

It works very well.

I already know about that..but I think they are called Fog X (same makers). I just don't wanna have to keep buying it and reapplying it. Guess I'll just have to deal with it.

it's called "small cabin".... that's why you never see big sedans fogging up as easily.</font>
he hit it right on the nose. thats the core reason of your lude fogging up easily.

as for having to reapply the fog X or whatever... just think of it as waxing your car. in the same way, r u gona be lazy enough to not wax your baby??? hell no...

yeah i noticed it too, and it annoys the hell out of me. just turn the ac full coldness to the highest level and it'll dissapear but then you'l get cold so you have to turn it back on. its a big annoying cycle but i guess i've learned to live with it. anyawys, i heard about getting a brand new towel or something and then just rubbing for hours(okay, maybe 15 minutes straight
) with nothing(no windex, no rain x, no ANYTHING) and then it'll take off anything sticking to your windows and from what i hear its hard for condensation to stay on clean windows. hope that helped.

well as for me with the fogging i just windex my car once a month or so and it will be fine. just leave the temperature on cold usually and have it toward the windshield/feet and it will be fine. you dont need to turn it on

if you read you manual you would have figured this out already..

you must live in a humid area so if you turn up your vents with highest heat, you'll probably get more fogging-up.

the best way to prevent this is this. put your vent fans on 2nd notch level. heater just below max hot. and turn ON your a/c.
the A/C will dry up the air whilst warming up your car.

if you were hardcore and you took OUT your a/c, then you can crack open yuor windows JUST slightly to let a little cold air in.

ps: on canadian preludes, honda got this complaint often so they made it so that whenever you press that defroster-vent button, the A/C automatically turns on, and you'll notice the LED is amber (not green like the other buttons).

Finally! Someone with enough sense to read the owners manual. I was wondering when someone would reply that this problem is covered in the owners manual.

Just turn on the A/C, it doesn't have to be on the defrost setting, but just turning on the A/C turns on the compressor, which dries out the air. This will get rid of the fog.

This is not aimed at anyone in particular, but I have noticed that some of you take small problems that can be solved in 5 minutes, and blow them way out of proportion.

All Hondas and Acuras seem to have this problem going back for 15 years or more. Even the RL. Like they said, just hit the A/C button. It lowers the humidity inside the cabin.
