It sounds like you have a problem with lens flare. There aren't any filters that can fix this but what can is a Lens Hood. What kind of camera/lens do you have?

Hi,

About the glare, can it be fixed to some extent with a polarizing filter? It cuts reflection from non-metallic surfaces, so I was wondering how would it work on cars, given they are metallic....

Jinay.
