I have a 2015 Gen Coupe Auto . Water also leaks down in my passenger wheel well and down my passenger rear pillar threw a seem in the body and I have also seen water in my trunk where spare is. I have recorded videos just have to upload them. The dealer keeps saying they fixed it but every time it rains it still leaks. My car is only at 30000. Hundyai has a big problem and is doing everything to avoid addressing the problem.

11gencpe,

The fix for the water on foot well issue is so stupid of a fix, I'm shocked it really worked. But the only thing more shocking is when you check your Cabin air filter. Don't turn on your A/C till you replace it or it dries. That filter held back a lot the water from enter your car.
I'm sorry, can you expand on this? I must have missed the fix

No my car also does not have a sunroof. I went to dealer again they claimed water in trunk was tail lights so they replaced the seal behind them they also claim they replaced the seals going over the roof off car and down windshield because they' say it's worn. After 30000 miles give me a ****ing break. So they say they replaced the parts. Went home stuck a water hose on roof of car guess what happens. Water starts dripping in car in passenger foot well. But did not see water in trunk.so I'm ****ing furious about the front leak now at this point. That now I'm in contact with Hyundai consumer affairs.

Noticed the common "leaking into the tail light and into the spare tire area" this past week. (Purchased the car two weeks ago.)

Took off the rear tail light (left) and used electrical tape to create an "L" channel that connects the vertical gasket and the horizontal plastic portion of the housing, preventing the water from getting between the gasket (on the housing side) and the housing itself. I also made some layers of electrical tape on the opposite side of the gasket so there is more pressure applied to the gasket when tightened down against the body. Finally, layered electrical tape on the back side of the top portion of the tail light housing so it is harder for water to fall into the gap (between the body and the black plastic portion).

After a 3 hour rain this morning, I saw no new water where there previously was some. There will be plenty of chances this summer (in Korea) to see if this solution "holds water."~^^


Update (7/21/19):

After some heavy rains and the remnants of a tropical storm this weekend, there is not any water making its way into the tail light nor the floor of the trunk!

Foe those with the water behind the driver seat issue. Hyundai fixed two leaks on my 2016 3.8, sun roof drain (for $150?) , and tail light(covered under warranty) I blow dried all of the carpets after then a few days later...more water! I took it back to hyundai and they told me me no more leaks or its my own fault yada yada. Turns out after they fixed the tail light, no one thought to do anything about the two inches of water still sitting under my tire. Bought damp rid to soak it all up and hopefully no more wet carpets!

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!
I have this same flaw I think the past weeks I’ve been finding huge puddles of water in my car passenger side foot well an in rear seat foot well it’s really annoying hopefully I can find a way to solve the problem

Any recalls by any auto manufacturers would to address a safety concern. Otherwise it would just be a TSB

That's not how it works.

If manufacturers had their way, there would be no recalls.
Issues get reported to the NHTSA, the its that body to to determine if the issues is a safety issue enough to warrant a recall.
