I have a new to us 2008 vw Jetta and every time it rains all the windows get covered in condensation and the ac or defroster does not help. The ac will start to send out warm air as well. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

if the ac is blowing warm you are likely out of ac coolant. I would check the ac condesor (smaller rad at the front) for a oil spot as it most likely got a hole and leaked all the coolant out over time.
