I bought a brand new 2015 WRX Limited a little more than 2 weeks ago. Last Saturday I returned to my car to find the passenger side footwells flooded (approximately 1" or more in the rear and about 1/4" to 1/2" in the front). In fact, the reason I noticed the water was there was because of a sloshing noise like a fish tank as I came to my first stop. Everything else above the water line was bone dry (there were no windows down, sunroof was closed). The water was still standing Saturday night and there was still water on the flooring Sunday morning.
It rained Saturday afternoon, but nothing compared to the amount it rained the previous Thursday and other days shortly after I bought the car.
I took the car to my nearest dealer this Monday and was told they were too busy to do anything about it and bring it back on Wednesday. They've had the car now since Wednesday and have found nothing wrong. I asked about any clogged drains or if the AC condenser could have affected it but they said no. This brings me to a couple of questions:
1. Because this is such a new car I cannot find anything specifically about this being a problem on the new WRXs, but have read about it occurring in Forresters and Outbacks every now and then. If they say there is no clog, any ideas what might be causing this? Has anyone else had this problem?
2. They have told me the car will not be ready until Tuesday at the earliest. To me, this seems like an unreasonable amount of time to re-install the interior components, but I am no expert. I've already had delayed service problems with this dealership before so am I just being paranoid or should it really take almost a full week to complete this job?
Thanks for reading. I've attached some pics as well from the Sunday morning after it occurred (the movies are too large).
