    2013 WRX hatchback taillight/reverse lamp issue

    My 2013 WRX hatchback is less than a week old and I have discovered moisture/condensation inside the drive-side taillight. The lamp I am referring to is the one on the outside, not the one on the hatch. Not too much rain around here lately (northern VA) however I did get a car wash yesterday. Noticed the moisture in the lens this morning.

    I called the dealership and they said to bring the car in. However, the moisture is gone now. Could this be normal? I have read that it is possible that the taillight is vented/ not sealed.

    This has reportedly happened to the headlights of some GR models.2011 WRX - Condensation in the headlights...


    Unfortunately it is not covered under warranty according to a SOA bulletin. BS you say? I agree entirely.

    I have a 2013 DGM Hatch and this is happening to me as well, did you happen to contact the dealer or try and fix this your self?
