Me again (see message directly above 11/8/17). After said event (above) I took it to dealership (not purchase dlrship as thats rather far away). Nevertheless, the dealership treated me superbly. It was so good it was almost unsettling based on what I'm used to from ford & audi.
ANYhoo, they replaced all 4 door seals and all carpet on the left side of the car. Gave me a brand new loaner as the service was done.
All seemed well but I've just found out today that the rear pax left side foot well is again sopping wet. This 'leak' issue at least in my vehicle is absolutely 100% -not- due to driving thru floods, etc. as I drive the car only once or twice every month or so. It's been sitting for ~month undrivien and was dry when I last left it...I'd just finally gotten the musty smell out in fact.
Obviously I'm disappointed, though I'm not angry or mad b/c they at least appeared to do their best to fix the issue and treated me very well in the process. But it looks like I'll have to see them again and hope resolution/cause can be found. What worries me most is that after the 1st episode I noticed 'condensation' in for example the rear 3rd light lens (INside), and noticed a few weird Audio/system 'quirks' that hadn't happened before (though might be totally coincidental I realize). Anyway moisture INside stuff esp when condensing and trapped so to speak is not a good thing. I hope badness isn't happening 'deep within' as by analogy can happen in a home that gets water in the walls after a significant leak etc.
But for this issue I love LOVE the car. Except oh also the plastic shift paddles. Those really annoy me for some reason.
