    Open up the flap on the near side of the car underneath the wipers theres a big drain in there which is probably full of junk. Thoroughly clean that out and replace your pollen filter and job done

    I was getting that on both previous cars, if the above doesn't work try giving it a couple of good cleans with something like Autoglym glass cleaner inside. First time on mine improved it, second cured it.

    the inside of the windows and windshields are dirty, maybe from cigrette smoke , etc. if you clean all the windows from the inside until squeaky clean (i use window cleaner and kitchen towel)and then change the pollen filter for a new one, that should stop the inside steaming up.
