    Had this in a Cavalier it was water in the boot the first time then got it again water in the car, carpets wet, the water coming in due to blocked drains below windscreen

    May be of no help but it's got to be damp somewhere to cause the condensation.

    Yeah, get this too. I think its pretty normal and running the A/C normally clears it pretty quick.
    I think on mine its because I mainly do short journeys, the car just gets a bit damp, they need good long runs every now and again to dry them out.

    Good point about the A/C. If you have A/C on all the time it is quite possible that intially when the car is started the A/C is not drying the air properly and blows out extra damp air. If the windows are below the air dew point then they will immediately mist up. It happens on mine when I switch off the A/C with the fan still running - damp air blown out and mists up windows.

    My rear window gets soaking wet all the time.There is quite alot of road noise/wind which i can hear from the rear window area also.Could there be an air vent on the rear which lets in AIR?

    On my front window i turn the heater dial to the floor when its parked up,this seems to stop the front misting / even icing up.
