View Full Version : 2006 Subaru Outback.... steamed up windows?

We live in cold climate. Almost everytime we get into the car (especially at night) the windows have steamed up and when it is COLD, we have to actually scrape the inside of the windows? Any ideas? Hints?

Moisture is trapped inside the car. It either has a leak, or you are dragging lots of snow inside on your feet that melts and gets the carpets all wet.

You should use a car cover..

I had the same problem and found the easiest way to handle it was to put the windows done for a bit and let the hot moist air out before parking it!

It is most likely a leak; do you hear any kind of whistling or feel a breeze when you drive down the highway? Going by pictures of that model, there is no obvious place to look for a leak.

I recommend that you do not have air on recirculate, but flip lever to fresh air. Also, be sure to use defrost or defrost/mix mode. Cracking window a bit helps for stale air exhaust.
