Not sure if anything like this was posted yet but the service manager at my dealership just gave it to me when I went to pick up my car.

Mine started getting condensation on Sunday so today I brought it by the local dealer. Service manager came out to look at the car and ordered me a new one. Should be in in a few days

My car has this pretty bad. Looks like you sprayed a water hose inside the lense!

Guess I'm going to the toyota dealer tomorrow.

If you have this condensation problem don't just wait for it to go away. Chances are, because of this issue, the condensation will eventually come back. I'd suggest taking it to your local dealership asap. They took good pictures of the condensation for proof.
Wonder if Scion can use that...

I would imagine they could since they are all manufactured together.

Has anyone actually seen the cracks on their own tail lights?

I didnt take mine out, but Im curious to see.

Oddly enough, with the heat and leaving the car in the sun this week, my condensation went away. But I know once we have another storm its coming back. Im just happy its clear again (and just in time for a meet).

I've had my car less than a week, but it got rained on while parked on the top level/roof. I drove to a car wash last night after work. While drying the car off, I happened to notice condensation in the tail lamp. After reading this I'll have to investigate further!

Sorry for the delay...but no it wasn't the first time it got wet, but I think the first time it got wet and had a series of getting colder at night and then hot in the day (maybe for dew to form). I haven't seen it again but then again it hasn't been cold at night. Also took it to the dealer with the pictures and they said they would talk with SOA.
