    The windshield on my dad's Maxima looks like it has really fine scratches, which makes it really hard to see when there's a sun glare hitting the windshield. is there anything i can do to repair this?

    There's most likely nothing that can be done without changing the prescription of the glass, but it depends how deep the scratches are. If they're that visible, you'll probably need to replace the glass.

    I don't know of a product that can consistantly remove scratches from windshields.

    Cerium Oxide is a glass polishing compound, it will take out light scratches I think the pads are leather or something like that. I never used it but if you do a search over the net.... Polishing glass is a field by its self. just can't let the glass get hot while polishing it will crack.
    I found on a net search on polishing glass
