Default Water leak 2014 Coupe

I know from the forum that there were (sometimes severe) water leak problems in previous Mustangs - mostly on the front passenger side. I have not had this problem with other Mustangs but recently purchased a new 2014 GT Coupe.

I have noticed a small water leak (twice) after rains in the front passenger side area on the mat in front of the seat. I noticed it because I still have the white "courtesy" paper they put in the car over the front passenger floor mat when I picked it up. After a rain last night (I live in South Fla.) I noticed some water spots on the paper on the floor in front of the passenger seat.

Anyone having (or know of) similar water leaks in 2013-14 Coupes?

Would take it into the dealer if it continues but wondering if this is common and what the potential cause might be based on the description. I will try to replicate it using a hose. Thanks for any feedback or experience with this.

Check the drains in the cowl area, they may be clogged. I would also remove the useless plugs on the door bottoms, they only trap water in the doors:

Thanks.

Car is brand new built 1/14.

I am aware of the leak issues with previous years and extensive posts about them - e.g., drain plugs, door plugs.

This seems to be a small leak over the passenger side footwell/mat area in front of the seat after hard rains - As I said - only noticed it because I have the white paper mat there from when I bought it new in March and it has only rained a few times since I got it.

Was wondering if anyone has experienced leaks in the 2013-14s. If I had to guess, it is coming from the top of the windshield over the passenger seat floor area - just a guess... The water drops are a bit brown colored on the white paper.

Thanks for any input or experience with this and how to proceed.

Is the headliner along the edge of the windshield wet?

Proceed directly to the dealership for a warranty repair.

This is of course the obvious and best action and what I will do. Just wondering if this was a common issue in the 2013-14s from current owners.

Potman - no, the headliner does not seem to be wet above the area. Not a big leak at this time but keeping an eye on it and the paper mat there so I can monitor it. Thanks

could be something as simple as a grommet not completely seated in the firewall or behind the kickpanel. nevertheless, you have a warranty, use it
