I've also noticed the uniform rows of "spots" on almost every car I've ever driven (especially with polarized lenses on). I think this is something that happens with back windows (possibly due to the defroster elements in the glass?).

Yea... I've seen/had those spots on EVERY car I've ever owned. They usually are only visible with polarized lenses, or in certain lighting conditions. I've noticed them before on almost every make and model of car. I think they have something to do with the defroster elements in the glass, but not 100% sure.

The fact the spots are in such neat repeating rows tells me is has something to do with how the glass is made/laminated/etc. But it only seems to effect the rear window, another reason I assume it has something to do with the defroster elements

Ok thanks.... was just a little worried. But I definitely appreciate the info. Getting the windows tinted so hopefully it helps.
