    I have a ton of water coming into the passenger rear footwell. The side of the hatch was slightly damp, but it's completely saturated on the carpet. Even a bit of the bottom of the leather of the seat is damp. No idea where it's coming from as I sucked it all up with a wet-vac, ran a hose over the car without finding it any more damp than it was, then the next day it's soaked. (No it did not rain any time in between.)

    I will be calling the dealer in the morning to see if they can troubleshoot, but any ideas from you guys that I could check would be awesome. Thanks.

    Do you have a sunroof? If so, oftentimes the source of water inside the car is a loose or clogged drain tube.

    You bought your car used?

    recirculate turned on for the A/C? check to see if that's plugged, or draining back into the car. It's under the passenger seat IIRC.

    No sunroof. Didn't remove the seat to troubleshoot the AC line. Car is at dealer now. Still cannot believe that Ford doesn't supply loaners for issues like this while under warranty. I don't care if it's a 2000 zx3. Sigh.

    That really depends on the dealer. Some dealerships do supply loaners.

    I called every dealer within 30 miles. All had the same policy.

    My local dealer gives a courtesy ride to work or home, and then will pick me up too. We bought a cheap car, so I don't expect to get extras like a free loaner, but it'd be nice!

    Let us know what the dealer says about the water!
