Aaahh, the joys of driving a Mondeo with a heated front screen. By the time I've quickly whizzed over the side windows the front and back are nice and clear.

I had to deice my car twice this morning.
Once at 7am, and then went inside to finish my coffee and by 7.25, it was frozen over again.

Ahh I look forward to the snow and ice, I have one huuuuge hill to go up and down....isn't gonna happen :P
On a side note, it's below 0 here atm and the sixth form girls are still wearing what I call belts! o.0 they have huge coats and barely anything else on! how do they survive?!?!?!

Its the magic Ford heated windscreen, I can't believe other cars don't have it. Jump in on a morning, hit the magic button and play with my phone for a couple of minutes, quick go of the wipers and you are off!

We used to have a Mondeo estate with that and it was brilliant! I really miss it. My Focus doesn't have it and, sadly, neither does the Volvo.

My wife has a Mondeo, but we no longer have the magic screen - until her bro accidentally put his windsurfing gear through it!
Back to the de-icer and waiting for the demisters to clear the screen...
Though she always rubs it in that her heaters work!!

PMSL! Ken Hardman!
Ken Hardman was given a £30 fixed penalty notice for leaving his engine on to warm up his car during the cold snap in the morning.
Whos his mate.... Max Power??

My 2006 Focus does, it seems strange that Volvo, a manufacturer you would think had to deal with some REAL winter weather doesn't include it? Same with BMW etc.

I love it when people poor hot water on their windscreens from their kettles....will they ever learn?!!

I did that this morning, warm water mind, from the roof of the car, not directly on the glass.

i swear they're watering down the de-icer too i'm sure it used to work much better than it does now

Nonsense - due to global warming we don't get ice on our cars now - we get permafrost! The end is nigh! The polar ice caps will get... colder...
