I drive a 2007 Skoda Octavia Ambient 1.4. I am having problems with wet inside the front and rear windscreens, yet the automobile does not seem damp. Also, the rear wiper stops and starts as it sees fit. What would you suggest?

The rear wiper is an easy one to start with as it's very common with this automobile. The wiring loom gets broken near the hinge for the hatchback so you'll need a good mechanic or auto electrician to fix that one, but it shouldn't cost a fortune to do.
It's trickier to assess your fogging-up problem from afar. It essentially means there is moisture in the automobile somewhere, though sometimes simply cleaning the inside of all the windows properly sorts this out. Other than that, avoid using recirculation of the interior air, do use the air conditioning if you have it and, if all else fails, consider leaving a dehumidifier running for a while in the cabin to take out moisture.
Hope that helps
