I just bought a white Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track about 2 months ago and i love it, but there's one design problem, water leaks in on the passenger side foot well. The first time i noticed this was after we had a pretty good rainstorm and there was about a cup of water on my passenger side floor mat(they're rubber mats so i could see it). And I didn't think much of it but i would keep an eye on it. After our latest storm i could obviously tell water was dripping in. So i immediately took it to the dealership where i bought the car where they could check it out. They ran it through the car wash 3 times and it never leaked, but when they put water hose on the windshield so the water could run down into the area where the fresh air for the a/c is taken in and it leaked. The fresh air intake for the a/c is located at the base of the windshield area. If you open the hood and look at the back of the engine compartment you'll see a rubber seal that seals the rear of the hood and directly behind that seal in the middle of the car are about 20 or 30 little holes, and that is where your fresh air is being taken in. Now the area around this intake does not adequately drain water, which leads to a back up of the water and causes the leaking to occur(the leak only occurs when the car is parked, not moving). People with carpet mats probably dont notice this because the water is a limited amount, but its still water coming into your car. Hyundai said that they had no fix to this problem yet, but it's a factory defect and they need to come up with one soon. Keep your eyes out for water guys!
