I'm not sure I would call them scratches on all my windows but I seem to have little blemishes all over them and for the life in me, I can't get the any of the windows spotless.
I might have to order that janvil and give it a go. Thanks for the link.

I've never tried Janvil.
Let us know how it works if you do try it.

I had this problem on my 2006 RAV4. No problems on the Camry.

When I drove into the sunlight the scratchs were really apparent.

As I found them a week after I bought the car, Toyota covered a new windshield under warranty. I had to wait 4 weeks to have one shipped from Japan.

Soooo..I guess it depends on how long it has been since you bought the Camry as to if it can be covered under warranty

The conclusion was that during the PDI process the glass was cleaned with a cloth that had something abrasive on it (dirt, sand, etc)

i worked at a body shop and more than once if you dont use a clean towel on glass they scratch and scratches dont come out of glass thats why i dont use car washes and never get the free carwash at service dept. becouse the 8 dollar an hour guy doesnt give a shit about your glass and hell use that towel wich just fell to the ground to wipe off your windshield and the scratches are no adtnl charge ...
