Customer Question

I am thinking about buying my friends 2009 S40 Volvo. I washed the windshield- it seems to have little specs in the windshield - also does not come clean- seems to have a film on it.
JA: Are you fixing your S40 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tried washing the windows with vinegar- and just the regular soap they have at gas stations for windshields.
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: Ths is about the windows
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: There appears tobe apattern on the sun roof- a nd the back window- like egg carton pattern of light and dark.

Ok this is a defect in the glass . Has the glass ever been replaced?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I don't think so. What about the pattern I see in the sunroof and back window? Is it somehow related to dome special tint process?
Expert:  Tom replied 9 months ago.
that's exactly what it's related to but I've seen this before and when it was really bad the glas was replaced under warranty which you are out of. How bad is it does it actually affect your vision ?
