    I could not find anything on the forum or online about Tesla replacing ghosting windshields.
    Did anyone had their issue fixed at SC?

    I recall a few in that thread that have had theirs replaced.

    I have asked my SC to keep me informed of any fixes but have heard nothing.

    Mine was replaced because of a spontaneous crack a couple days after delivery, but it did not correct the ghosting issue.

    No. Or at least, not everyone notices it.

    Your eyesight also plays a role in this which affects whether you notice it or not.

    Definitely seems to be the case. I will admit to mine not being what it used to be! Although, I have tried wearing my glasses and I still see it. :rolleyes::p;)

    I had the same spontaneous crack! I am on hold to have it replaced because apparently a new windshield that will remove the ghosting is about to be released.

    So tired of that problem. I'm supposedly on a "list" since last summer, and the issue is supposedly under investigation.

    Here good video to see it live:

    I took delivery in 12/2016 and notice the same issue. I believe it is a prismatic effect that is most noticeable with direct light (LED from car headlamps) but I notice distortions during daytime as well.

    I do not have the ghosting issue thank god but I have a dangerous smear in my line of site when it rains or snows. I'ts constantly there and pretty bad when it rains, which is all the time in Portland. Tesla is on the 2nd attempt to fix. RainX did not help.

    I've noticed the wiper smear as well. For me it goes away on the wiper upstroke but comes back on the downstroke. Really annoying.

    Interesting that he thinks they resolved it. More great internal Tesla communication. :rolleyes:

    Once they get rid of that smear for you, I'm sure you'll be able to see the ghosting. You may actually miss the smear. ;)

    I just hope smearing windshields doesn't become Tesla's final solution. :eek:

    I hope they can fix it, I really do not want a ghosting problem.

    Oh I see the ghosting also. Actually, there's probably less ghosting through the smear!
