I've not used preheating in a while - I don't remember the fogging. I'll try tomorrow.sattelitemckane wrote:Thanks folks,
I am just going to have to get get used to cracking the window when in the garage!
From what I've seen, defog is very fast, as fast as my old Maxima, if not faster - but its been a while I drove an ICE, so may be my momory is faulty.saywatt wrote:I will try the cracking the windows scenario, but here in the PNW, garages are just as humid as the outside so I'm speculating that it won't be much better.
The other quirk I've noticed is that when the defroster is tured on, the fan speed is always very slow. Typically, in most other cars I've had, the fan runs at max when the defroster is started - reason being that if you are driving and conditions fog up your windows, it's a safety issue to defrost as soon as possible.
Interesting - are you turning on climate control remotely, or in the car? When I did a little test turning climate control on remotely, it did not try to change past 80%, and the blue charge lights did not come on. The far left light blinked, but the two rightmost were off.
