Seems like I can’t catch a break with the new car. My Ateca has the ‘heated windscreen’ which I thought will be great, I will be able to defrost the windscreen in a minute or two and be good to go. Oh how I was wrong. The heated windscreen does clear the outside of the windscreen perfectly but what it causes is an insane amount of water on the inside of the windscreen. Water droplets land on the dashboard and even over me and the passenger in the front. And it leaves loads of water droplets on the windscreen that aren’t heavy enough to fall off. The pictures are taken after using the heated windscreen for 4 minutes and then a 20 minute drive with the heater on the highest setting with AC enabled and the windscreen was still covered. This issue has happened more than once and I don’t think this should be happening. My Leon never had the heated windscreen and never had condensation this bad. Anyone had a similar problem?
