Angry New Mini leaking water inside !!!!

Bummer, I noticed the carpets were damp after a night of rain over the weekend and some streaks of water visible on the left hand side of the passenger footwell.

I have to say my dealer was pretty crap at responding to my issue, seems they are very busy and the fact I have just given them huge amount of cash counts for nothing! The girl on service had a "computer says no" attitude! "Wednesday is the soonest we can have a look and we have no courtesy cars". Soooooo I was on my way down to cause a scene when she called to say they would look at Tuesday morning and a courtesy car was available.

I will report back

Ooh, that's disappointing. Just out of interest, was the car parked on the level? I know of other cars that had issues when parked at an angle on driveways. Still not acceptable though!

Good luck!

Or as Arnold would say if it comes to it:

Hasta lavista baby.

As above, let's hope it is easily fixed and is not going to be a commonly experienced problem.
Please keep us informed of how it goes.

Yeah parked on a level, I am pretty sure it is a blocked water drain away from the corner of the windscreen on the passengers side. I will keep you posted. Cheers

You hadn't left a window open a tiny bit? I guess you'll have already checked that though.....

First thing I checked :-) Water is in the footwell and not on the seats.

So is it today it's getting checked out, or next week? Fingers crossed it's something obvious/easy to fix
