Front and rear passenger carpet soaked

Our Focus Ti is a few months old. Ever ytime we start the car, it sounds like water is sloshing around somewhere in the vehicle. My wife and I figure it the rain cowl since weve bbeen having weird rains in MD. So today my wife drops something on the passenger side floor and noticies the carpet is soaked. We have the winter package with floor mats so we never really noticed the wetness. Taking it to the dealer Monday to get it looked at and hopefully get the active shutter fix too. Anyone else have this issue? What is the likely hood of mold as my wife is extremely allergic and we have two 3 month Olds.

If you have a moon roof, my guess would be the drain tubes are clogged with debris and water is overflowing from the moon roof tray assembly into your car. Use to happen to my Volkswagen while living in the DC area especially with fall weather approaching. Have them check the drain tubes. Good luck

My '08 Altima was just totalled today for mold. I thought I had the water cleaned out well. I didn't. It developed into mold and caused my wife to develop pneumonia & both my boys had bronchitis. Those seats need to be removed and the carpet too in order to have it properly dried.

You need to demand that Ford takes it to a flood damage specialist to have it properly taken care of. Trust me, please. This turned out to be a serious, SERIOUS issue within my family.

There was one thread on the subject where the water was caused by the drain for the evaporator/heater housing being blocked.

It would certainly be something to have them check.
