I've also suffered from this the last few weeks. As said above, I find I have to have blower set to windscreen for a few minutes every 10 minutes. If I leave blower on footwell only for more than 10 minutes the screen and side windows mist up. Probably just excessive water got into carpets from getting in with wet shoes as we had lots of rain a couple of weeks back. Next warm dry day we get I'll leave doors open to let car dry out.

In winter I can't use any setting other than demist or demist plus footwell, else it will mist. ditto Corsa D and Astra H. I reserve the others for summer A/C.
Recirc is temporary only for me, like for driving through clouds of diesel smoke, else misting yet again.

I've not had any car that has been this bad before.

Even our 50 old Land Rovers will not mist up with the blower set to footwell permanently and that is despite having water pouring through gaps in door seals and pooling on the floor every time it rains! ;-)

I've posted about this item before but, I use a Pingi-PD-A300P6-UK-Reusable-Car-Dehumidifier in my Corsa having had great success in our Antara.
It's the size of a small bag of rice and lasts for a couple of weeks (or more) before the indicator goes from Blue to Pink. When it does, pop it in the microwave for 6 mins (600W) or less depending on power rating of microwave and it steams-off the absorbed liquid. I tend to sit it in the airing cupboard for a while too, just to let it dry out after microwaving.
Great piece of kit IMO.

My car has quick clear windscreen but rear doors mist up badly, can this be fixed under warranty or do I have to put up with fan noise and heater control set to face level vents?

Common trait with Corsa re rear door windows steaming up

The heater and air con motor isn't strong enough to clear it quick

Opening dirver.passenger windows will speed up demisting but it will take time

Found water under spare wheel.
