water sloshing

My 2008 ford focus...makes water sloshing sounds when in motion...sounds like alot of water or something? What could it be? I cleaned out the drain underneath the car on the passenger side..but that didnt do it...what else do I need to do??

Driver's side, doors, trunk, have all been known to suffer from the "plugged drain" syndrome.

Even the A/C drain is on the list, though that is more of a summer issue & often results in a wet floor.

Oh, and BTW, the hatch has an area between the wheel well and the door post that can accumulate water as well.

Luck finding it!

Yeah, doors. The window/door edge does not stop water from getting into the door.
The doors have drain holes at the bottom. The op's are plugged.
That is my bet too.
