How do I use the rear window defogger?

The rear window defogger is a key safety feature. It helps eliminate moisture from the rear window to give you better visibility. To turn on the rear window defogger, press the rear window defogger button, which is located alongside the climate controls. You can turn off the defogger by pressing the button a second time; otherwise, the defogger will automatically turn off after roughly 10 minutes.
