i have a question about the glass in my nova? i clean the windows inside and out but after a couple days they start getting this kinda oily film on them ?
i have used differant window cleaners but it always comes back??? anyone else get this?
Do you smoke? Not that it is my business or anything but if you smoke in the car it can cause an oily film to develope on the inside of the glass. And the more you smoke in the car the faster it developes.....BUT I am not saying that this is for a fact causing it just that smoking in a car can cause such a film.:)

Vinyl like all plastics is made from petroleum by products. The newer the interior the more it will degas in the heat. I really can't tell you how to stop it. It will decrease over time.

Terry,
The other thing that will do it is a leaking heater core. Do you smell any antifreeze odor ? Also, have you recently cleaned the interior and used a protectant like Armor All ? Armor All and others like it will make a terrrible film for quite a while, especially if you really layed it on.
Hope this helps,

i bought the car last year and the people had it detailed before i bought it!
i didnt even think about the armor all ? the heater is disconnected no hoses hooked up! i bet it is the cleaning stuff! i will have to try and degrease it;)
thanks.
Shoot didn't even think of the Armor All (or other products like it) either...ya that stuff will slime up a windsheild really fast if your not carefull applying it or dont clean the glass right after you use
