WATER IN THE FRONT PASSENGER FOOTWELL

2007 Suzuki XL7

Interior problem
2007 Suzuki XL7 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 10000 miles

A lot (and I mean a lot!) Of water accumulates in the passenger foot space.
It is NOT air conditioning related as this happens when the air is not used.
I saw water pouring in from the side panel just above the top of the plasctic cover on the right side of the interior footwell the last time I drove the car in a heavy rain.
But I think it leaks even when the car isn't moving.

Is this a problem with body integrity under the right front wheelwell?
Is this a problem with the drain from the sun roof?
Or is it something else?

I would certainly take it to Suzuki and have it looked at.
It could be some sealant used to seal the panel joints has come loose or was never installed properly.

It should still be under warranty and I would have Suzuki repair it.

Water intrusion in the passangers compartment could cause damage over time, such as rust in the floor pans and mold in the carpet. They should fix the leaks and replace the carpet, also check any damage to electrical connections.
