I've noticed a greyish/white film on the windshield from running the AC I assume. It appears after using the AC for a couple of days and wipes off no problem.

The Altima does the same thing.

Is this just a Nissan thing? I've never seen this in any of my other vehicles.

It is due to that newer safer refrigerant.

its the plastics. Ive read a detailed paper from audi that tests new plastics to avoid this very issue. Its the chemicals released, and the UV rays from the sun along with the heat speed up this process, so in the summers its worse.

Happens in any vehicle that's pretty current. Does it in the wife's car which is an '03 Chevy.

Never had it happen before. Just found it really odd.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Yes, it's it the plastics, and why they went through so much trouble with the in cabin microfilter, so that shit don't get out into the atmosphere and kill any small children. I also read the article about that "New Car Smell" being dangerous. MC

i had the same problem in my 96 honda accord, got to a point where it actually seriously blurred your vision at night if you went a month or so without cleaning it

Yeah I gotta clean my windows in both my truck and the wife's car. I was driving the wife's car yesterday and it was pretty bad when the sun hit it. I couldn't see the car in front of me so I'll be hitting that up tonight or tomorrow.

My Camaro does the same thing. Its the plastics. My dash is like the frickin size of a picnic table, so after just a couple of days in the sun, it comes back.
