    I spent 12 hours in a snow storm yesterday. I found the headlights were covered with snow in a short time. As things got darker, I had to stop about every hour and manually clear off the front headlight lenses. I never had to do this with other cars. Have others had the same experience? Is this due to 2020 model year?

    Taking a guess here, the newer cars have LED headlights which do not burn hot,. I suspect the older halogen bulbs which burn very hot would heat the lens cover enough to melt the snow. I wonder if applying two coats of Rain X might help?
