During the first rain season, we found the Accord have this annoying problem with the wiper blade not able to remove water from the windshield. We have tried cleaning it, because we initially thought the windshield was dirty or greasy (shouldn't, since the car was brand new). I was hoping the problem will go away as we break the car in...didn't expect such shady issue from Honda.
Now, 3 years later, with >30k on the ODO, the problem is still there. I searched the web for an answer, but found this site instead. Similar problem were reported by limited owners, but appears to be a problem only affecting very small number of Accord owners. I signed up to report this problem in hope to help other Accord owners faced with the same problem, and save some hairs.

My 2009 Honda Accord has a blurry film on the windshield, which makes it impossible to see during a rain storm, with the wipers going, or when it's a sunny day. All you can see is smeary, polka dot film. I hate this car.
The defrosters take at least 1/2 hour to work also. The heater takes at least 20 minutes to work.
I hate this car. Never again.

I just bought my 2009 Honda Accord and noticed during a really bad rainstorm that the windshield wipers could not improve my visibility. Thankful to have lived through the storm, I started checking out the windshield and windows and noticed that there is a blurry film on the glass. If you wipe it off, it instantly reappears. I mentioned this to the dealer, and they checked with service only to tell me to wash it with Windex, which I did. The film comes back. I called an auto glass specialist who told me that this is a defect from the auto glass manufacturer. They spray a coating on the glass to make it go down the assembly line easier. If anyone else has had this problem, please let me know as I'm trying to get all my information together before I go back to the dealer.
