Wet passenger floor?????

Anyone else experience a WET passenger floor board? Just on a whim this morning I pulled up the all weather floor mat to confirm the carpet mat was there (see other thread) and noticed the floor was SOAKED!

Im in the Dallas area and got the car in June so Ive never driven it without the AC on. I have a feeling its a condesate drain issue. I checked the rest of the floor boards and they are dry.

Anyone else have this issue????

Will do. I havent had any temp issues. After reading the over heating stories I keep a pretty close eye on the temp gauge.

Have the AC drain checked. Do you see it draining out of the bottom of the truck?

Almost certain its the drain line. Drove around for 15mins with the AC on WFO and the carpet was noticably wetter.

Calling the dealership now.

nick75035,
Have you had a chance to set up an appointment with the dealer yet? Id be happy to help with this by escalating your concern, if youd like. So I can help, please send me a private message with your VIN, contact information, approximate mileage, and dealer info.

Cory

This morning after driving 30-45 mins the floor board is bone dry. I was supposed to take it in but cancelled. I will keep an eye on the next few days and see what happens.




Thanks Cory, I appreciate the offer.
