    Question new 2011 hatchback has a leak

    Brought my new car home last Thursday, been driving it and loving it but keeping her below 4000 RPM's. Been on some mountain roads and handles like no other car I have had. Yesterday Sat. I noticed a leak under the car on the right side, pretty consistent drip, checked with my finger water for sure. Went on a drive today about 50 miles, mountain roads, no dirt all nice smooth pavement, got home and the leak left a pretty good puddle on the drive way. I'm guessing this is not normal, anyone have any suggestions? Looks like it gonna have to go back to the dealer for a look

    Are you sure that's not just the compressor drain? The only thing in a car that has plain water is the condensate from the compressor...

    Is it clear water? It is likely from the A/C system, that is engaged when you use the defroster etc. The car does not store clear water anywhere except maybe the windshield washer reservoir, and the A/C will definitely produce water from condensation. If so, normal.

    OK yes it is clear water, just being an over paranoid new owner I guess, I've been driving my wife crazy, I spent the entire weekend washing and going over every inch of my car She says I'm super annoying. Thanks you all for the education, loving this car! I can't wait to drive it to work tomorrow
