Sounds like humidity inside the cabin is condensing on the glass then freezing. You can get a small passive de-humidifier online, which you just put on the dashboard. It soaks up moisture (up to about 600ml I believe) over a period of weeks/months, and you can just dry it out on a radiator
Lif up the mats and feel for dampness in the carpets. If there is dampness, it needs to go in to get sorted. Otherwise, it could just be water from your shoes evaporating from the mats, plus moisture from breathing, etc. Use the aircon for a few minutes (if you can stand it this weekend at minus 11!), which should dry it out.
Hi Alicia,<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
I'm sorry you're having problems with your windscreen freezing inside.
ujoni08 has made a very good point ""“ sometimes condensation will freeze inside the car. Condensation in cars can be caused by moisture entering the vehicle on wet clothing and shoes, which leads to condensation on the inside of the glass. When the outside temperature falls, it causes the condensation to freeze on the windscreen. Our technical department has confirmed that this is more likely to occur in vehicles which are used for frequent short journeys, especially if carrying several occupants.
But if you do feel there's a problem with your car, please make a booking with your dealer as soon as possible. Hopefully this will put your mind at rest, at the very least.

My Rio will get a lot of condensation on the inside of the window if left to stand for about a week. this is quite normal. But if you're getting a lot of condensation on a regular basis, check the pollen filter and check for leaks. On the Rio there is a pipe that can come off from the rear washer system in the driver's footwell, this can lead to dampness problems! Not sure if it's ther same for the Picanto.
