I am looking to buy a Genesis 5.0 R-Spec soon but I'm wondering about rain getting into the car. The only reason I'm thinking of this is that my wife has a 2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0T which, if left in heavy rain, lets in water in the trunk and the cabin. This is a design fault. Is there a similar problem with the Sedan, specifically the 5.0 R-Spec?

No. It's a well know problem. I believe the water gets in round the sun roof and the rear light cluster. If you leave the car out in a storm you wil end up with puddles in the trunk and on the floor pan.

Is your car a coupe?

We haven't done anything, just don't park the car outside in heavy storms. It's a known problem on the coupe. I'm glad the Sedan doesn't seem to have the same problem.

no issues at all on the sedan - at least none with mine and I have seen some serious rain storms driving and parked outside

During really heavy rain, I sometimes have noticed a drip or two of water hitting my left foot (i.e. when resting on the brake at a stop light). Hardly flooding, but it is getting in somehow.

left foot braking? Now there's a topic :)

sounds like maybe a leaky windscreen. Glad it's not serious
