I smoke in my car and notice it creates a build-up of film on the windows. It fogs up like crazy in the colder months.
Now I clean my inside windows regularly and it helps a bit.

Well, for the hole in the Floors, check your carpets, is it damp? you just did the winter driving which means snow and the dirt from the road got kicked up so that can be your answer.. but if not.. check your door seals.. look for any kinda of damage, see if they are on right,
for damages, have a look for the outstanding cracks and the holes.. that can be a contribute the the fog build up

definitely air circulation is an issue

run the air-cond for a short period, it will get rid of moisture...give it a try
and get it check..

ok so i checked these are the results:

The door seals are fine, the window seals are good too, don't think it's from there... but man, I was comparing my two front mats... the driver side is soaked.. and the passenger side is dry... but I always drive my dad to and from work so there is about the same amount of snow on both mats... so I think this really might be the problem... ****shit! I'll have to get it lifted to take a look underneath.

If I do have a hole underneath... is there a home remedy for this?? I like working on my car and would be down for doing this if it's possible... please let me know?!!?

Depending on how big the hole if, if you have a welding gun and illmatic skill, go ahead, but see what you are dealing with first before you tackle this job

Well, it will get worse, but hopfully the oil you sprayed will minimize the spread... but to prevent anymore damage.. do a quick sheet mettle and rivit fix

Did you try asking the dealership what could cause the fogging? Maybe they have a solution for once. Personally i think this fogging is an air circulation issue. wet floor is another issue, maybe hole maybe door seal, or water vapour barrier in the door. Even the smallest hole could lead to wetness. Do you have a sun roof?
