wow thats too bad....havent had that much of a problem as you seem to have had, and as ive posted thiswas pretty easily remedied. sound like this is a pretty serious problem for you so id recomend a visit to your dealer to see what they might think. you might have additional issues that my car doesnt have. ive loved my car and wouldnt willingly part with it.

ps have them ck for a cracked heater core or leaking hoses/connections inside the cabin....that would cause a lot of condensation on the inside. ussually accompanied by a slightly sweet smell. GOOD LUCK

There is no sweet smell I have to have the heat on high and turned up all the way to stay defogged....that roasts somebody to death....so i have to crack a window....it only starts fogging up when more than one person is in the car

yeh sounds like you have a lot of humidity in the car....that why more people make it worse, every exhale you make adds moisture. thats why i recomended turning on the air con with the heater turned up, it drys the air. did you have someone ck the heater core/hoses? might want to ck your floor mats and see if there wet, i sometimes put in rubber ones in really crappy weather. hope these ideas help! here a forum that has some really good help: http://www.sx4club.com/forums/index.php

In 45-degree weather, my windows were fogging up, and not with water either. They were obviously getting covered with something. The problem turned out to be a leaking heater core. Coolant was leaking, then evaporating into the cabin and getting deposited on the windows. I am now looking at a repair bill of more than $1000. A quick Google search suggests that this is a common problem with the Suzuki SX4.
