Anyone with a 17 EX-L, can you please check your rear windows?

Not long after we purchased our 17 EX-L, I was hand washing it when I noticed that the rear window on the passenger side had defrost strips on the inside however the drivers side did not. I looked at a 16 Touring tonight and it had defrost strips on both the drivers and passengers side rear windows.

I am curious to know if all EX-L's are like mine or if mine is a mistake. Does your 17 EX-L have defrost strips on both rear windows or only the passenger side?

I've never seen a touring to confirm they do.

Yes, but why both sides is the new question. Maybe HD radio,although HD not used in Touring, it's for the acoustic glass.
Or just bragging rights ?

Touring means off road -- thus needs both sides to boost reception.

The side rear window? I own a 2016 EX-L and it's just on the passenger rear (cargo area) window.

(Of course the back hatch window has strips on both sides...that's really the defroster.)

How about you take pics and post what you're seeing on the driver's side rear?
