Constant dirt/dust on back glass

This is my 1st SUV/crossover.. a 19' Denali.. I like to keep my vehicles clean and find due to the design of this SUV it's impossible to keep the back glass and the back of the car clean.. Just a 10 mi. drive results in a dusty/dirty rear end.. It's annoying as the rest of the car stays clean.. Has anyone figured out a way to address this?

Drive in reverse ?



Sorry, but that is just the nature of the beast, and the law of aerodynamics.

If you think the rear of your CUV gets dusty/dirty in dry weather; wait until you drive one in the rain. Even worse is driving in winter weather when deicing chemicals are applied to the roads; this makes a terrible mess, and worse yet, the chemicals are corrosive. I. spend more time than I like at the local car wash during the winter season here in the Midwest.

Well we sure did find out what a mess it makes in winter. The nearest car wash is about 4 mi. from our house, by the time I get it back home and in the garage it looks almost as bad as it did before the wash.. LOL

Have you tried a hydrophobic coating on the back glass like Aquapel, RainX, or Griot's Glass Sealant? I have found putting this on the back glass helps tremendously and makes rinsing it off much easier.

There was an older post, were a guy created a small deflector ( he used spacers on the rear top piece), in which he claimed it eliminated the problem

I remember that thread. Another member in that thread made or bought a aftermarket spoiler.


Found the thread.
