Window failure

A year and 8 months after we took possession of our new Escape, the window on the driver side of the loft on the 5.0TA fogged up. At first it would come and go but today
it seems to be permanent. When I called to speak with the folks at Escape, someone named Justin/Dustin told me the windows only have a one year warranty. The same for my overhead lights(3 failed so far). He did say that Escape thought furnace failures were the result of elevation. I had been camped at 3850 when mine stopped working. So Iíve started replacing the lights myself although I find it interesting that several folks with the same failing lights as me have gotten free replacements after the one year warranty had expired.

My question for folks on this forum is, what would you do about this window? Should I get a replacement with another 1 year warranty

If the window works mechanically , does not leak and only fogs occasionally , I would leave it alone till it fails completely and then replace it
We have mechanical issues with the rear window on our 21 so we just leave it closed and can’t use it
When it becomes a real issue , I will replace it .
