New Car Problem

Last week my car started doing something it has never done before. Three days in a row when I was leaving work, the inside windows have had frost on them.

I’ve been trying to figure out what was happening. It seemed strange that it was happening now when it’s warmer than the past few months, and I went through a whole winter without a problem last year.

The first thing I thought was maybe I got a new rock chip that was letting water in. I looked all over the front window and couldn’t find anything.

Then I thought maybe one of my windows was not up all the way, even though I haven’t touched them in months. But they seemed to be fine.

I asked my boyfriend if he had any ideas why it might be happening. He said it’s usually because there’s moisture inside the car and asked if I had any liquids inside. The only thing that I have is extra wiper fluid. I checked the bottle to see if it was leaking and to my cold hands it felt like it might have. But it could have just been cold.

So I stood the bottle up to see if it would make a difference, but of course the weather got warmer. The windows didn’t freeze up the following two days, but I don’t know if it’s because I moved the liquid or because of the weather. So I guess I will have to wait until this week to see if it made any difference.
