Why does my windshield have a film on it?
The film you see is created by all the plastic that’s inside your car. When your car is out in the sun, the sun heats up the interior to 130-145F or so. This heat creates off-gassing of the plastic dashboard and all other components. The plastic molecules get into the air and then settle on the glass surfaces.
