Hello All, first post here. Just picked up a 2013 with 294K miles-hope i don't regret it. It is really clean and just had the factory replacement engine procedure. You would never know this car has that many miles. Have a couple issues, but the main one is the touch screen not responding correctly to inputs. Multiple touches, having to find the "sweet spot" of where it works, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on a fix?? Would just like to get it up and running properly. Thank you

I haven't been able to find anything that helps even after calibrating it. I hardly ever have to use the touchscreen so it's not really an issue for me.

This may help you.

They fail often - mine was replaced twice at 70 & 130k. Works now but like others said, I don't even use it.

First things first: CLEAN YOUR SCREEN. Seriously. Use 91% Isopropyl Alcohol to thoroughly remove any and all oils from the screen, using a shop towel, or microfiber cloth.

Then, coat the screen with a hydrophobic finish, like HydroSilex, or similar. This will improve touchscreen performance immensely, and works on phones and tablets as well.

Never considered this!! Will try it and report back. Thanks!

Be careful, the car's touchscreen is very different than a phone's. You'll want to make sure whatever products you use on the screen are compatible with the older style soft/flexible resistive touch screen, unlike the glass capacitive phone/tablet screens.

I think the soft resistive touch screens are much more delicate and susceptible to damage. Probably best to only do what the owner's manual says regarding cleaning the car's touch screen.
