2013 focus foggy headlights
 
Hey guys. Just went and looked at a new 2013 focus and noticed the headlights were foggy on the inner corners from the inside. Same with my gf's car after a drive.
Is this a common issue?

probably weren't sealed properly at the factory. i detail for a ford dealer and i notice it every once in awhile on any car.

Crack them open, paint them something awesome and seal them up tight!!!

No way man. My gf bought and picked up her car today brand new and mine just arrived at the dealership today. I haven't even taken delivery of it. Ford is going to put new headlights in it or they are keeping both cars.

Ask for Titanium headlights (if they're not stock on yours). They're less expensive anyway. [;)]

They're not sealed headlights, and if you check the manual, you'll see that some condensation is normal. It evaporates once the lights are on for a few minutes.

Unless there is significant moisture inside (like standing water...) don't worry about it.

This

They do indeed have atmospheric vents.

There is a good amount of fog and it looks really hazy. I ordered mine with the black pack so they are the titanium headlights. However my gf's are chrome

Drive the car with the headlights on, it'll go away.

Just noticed the other day mine do the same thing. I have the black titanium's and they get really hazy inside in the morning. Is it normal for them to fog up on the inside? My last focus i had for 10+ years had vented headlights never fogged up on the inside. I'll mention it to the dealer I guess the next time I get my oil changed.
