Default Suggestions for fogged-up windows.

With my past Subaru (93 Impreza) the windshield never fogged up. The only time I ever used the windshield defroster was those early winter mornings to rid the ice and snow. NOW, since then I've purchased a '01 Legacy GT Sedan, I find myself using the defrost every night, reguardless of the outside temp. Anyone have any suggestions to rid the fog? Tricks?
Thanks in advance,

Make sure you don't have your inside air circulation button pressed.

In order for water dropletts to form, they must form on a condensation medium...such as dirt. Clean with windex and it should decrease if not go away totally.

run your AC with the defroster for a while. The process itself makes the air drier and may help get some of the damp air out of your car.

and no, even though you are running the AC it won't be cold air if the temp is moved to hot.

I'm assuming you have leather seats. They tend to release a lot of oils into the air in your car which stick to the windshield. You need to clean the windows more frequently in cars with leather seats to prevent condensation.
