 Description of the problemCar was parked outside for couple days under a heavy rain. Next day, when it was hot and sunny, i opened car's door and inside of the car was all humid and steamy. There was a musty scent as well. After checking the car i found some water in the left side of the trunk. Dealer service department after two day diagnostics told me that one of sunroof drain tubes is detached and that caused a leak inside the car. I think it presents both driving safety and health safety issues: - i wear glasses and because of the humid and steamy atmosphere in the car - my glasses kept fogging up and i had to stop couple times to clear them. Condition got better, but did not improve much after air conditioning in the car run for some time. - health concern is related to a mold that can accumulate in the car because of these leaks. It might cause allergic reactions or asthma. I think car manufacturer should either use better materials for these drains, so they do not deteriorate with time or change the design of sunroof drain system.
