There is a reflection from the windshield which is very blinding to the driver. Also the defroster vent on the dash reflects off the windshield so that visibility is impaired. Dealer has no fix. My fix was to place a dark rug on the dash. I feel that this is a design flaw and the manufacturer should correct it.

  • Automatic transmission

Defroster vent on dash is designed in such a way that it reflects off the windshield even on a cloudy day. Consumer is unable to drive vehicle due to this reflection. Dealer admitted it was a design flaw, but has no remedy.
