I too had that problem, but since I carpeted my rear deck, no more fog on the back window!!!! I only have to clean every couple of months now, and even then, there is hardly any fog on it.

As far as the black smudges, try orange glo, or a VERY SMALL amount of Bleech White (it's whitewall tire cleaner)

Does anyone have a method for reaching all parts of the back window with a wipe? It's so awkward for a tall guy like me to even get in the back seat, much less get angled to clean down by the brakelight. Any ideas, aside from hiring Mini-me to do the job?

you would have to remove the rear panel.....unless you can get a mini-me... it's not just Civics get all fogged up, WRX does too.......it reallys gets on my nerves, especially when the sun hits it.

I got a good way to get rid of fog. Very simple, I can't believe I've forgotten this trick that I learned in elementary school. spray a lil windex or similar solution on the glass, then use "newspaper, cheap recycled paper towel or blue paper towel which you can grab from most gas station and just keep wiping. Don't spray too much windex, just the minimal amount. When you do so, it's best if you have the sun light direct beams on the windshield or window so you can see the streaks and fogs.

This happened to me too. I realized though that the fog is due to me opening my windows fully while driving. All the little dust particles from the outside sticks inside the rear window. SInce then, I always close my window when in motion and no more fog Problem solved! I think it happens on most cars but I guess when you use fog cleaners and such, it would also help. BUt if you're lazy like me, you would just close your windows so you wouldn't have to clean as much. he he

I finally found out what causes the fog. it's from the vinyl and plastic inside your car, the heat cooks them up. Eventually after years and years they crack.

i have those circle things too and my glass always fogs up, i asked honda about it, and i dont remember exactly what they told me, but they said something like the vinyl is giving off like vapor or gas or something and it will go away eventually(prob after a year or two i dunno). i noticed that civic coupes have this problem and i never seen a sedan with it.
