I've also had condensation in my Headlight housing, but that's usually after a wash or a really humid morning.

Any chance your climate control is switched to "recirculate"? That and a big temperature drop could do this.

Just to be sure, check your floor boards to see if you have wet carpet and open the trunk or hatch and look in the spare tire well.
I remember a couple of posts where water was found inside the vehicle.

Seems like a ton of condensation, is this normal?

Thanks!

Have you checked your spare tire well to make sure its not full of water? This happened to others that had a leaky hatchback and they found a puddle of water there. That will cause the excessive condensation on the inside of your car. Also check all your carpets for wet spots

I could smell coolant inside with the heater on, but none of it leaked inside the cabin.
3 weeks later and having the doors and dashboard removed from my car... works great now :p

I read that too, checked and it seemed dry, probably just the wild weather. I did start shutting my climate off before getting out too and that seemed to work.

I left a window down overnight a couple weeks ago and had a lot of moisture in the car. I bought a box of baking soda and left it in the car for a couple days. Everything dried up.
