anyones windshield like this?

i noticed it when i first got the car a month ago but i just now looked into it. it looks like thousands of little tiny scratches all the way across my windshield. during the day you don't see it but at night if i go under a street light you see all of them. it doesn't block my sight but its very distracting. it looks like if little tiny rain droplets was all over my front windshield. another thing i have when i turn off my car ill hear a little squeak noise coming from the passenger side of my car. no idea what that is

Might be worth showing the dealer in case it's a faulty windshield.

I must admit that I have noticed something similar when the light hits the windshield at a certain angle. I used Stoner's cleaner and it is still there. In my case it is like tiny beads of water trapped between the layers of glass.

Having said that, I must admit that I only noticed it once when my car was standing in the driveway and haven't noticed it since. It must be limited to the light hitting at just the right angle.

throughout the day you don't notice it. but with me at night and i'm driving under the city lights i see it every time i pass under a street light. its nothing to block me seeing the road but it's very distracting. ill soon decide to take it to the dealer. i live 2 hours from a Mazda Dealership.

I noticed that too. At first I thought it was just my windshield being dirty, but last week I did a full detail on my car including claying the windshield. The outside is smooth (except for the couple of tiny chips from rocks, gotta love road construction) but I can still see these spots. As I drove home tonight I thought maybe they are on the inside so I am going to try and clean the inside really well and if that does not fix the problem I will be going to the dealer.
