Q: Anyone have water leak back floor boards ? Twice driver side once passenger side on 2013 Dodge Avenger

Garage can't find leak. Asked if they sprayed under carriage and they said no because there is no way car can have a leak from underneath... I've noticed it 3 times twice after heavy rain n roads where flooded and the other after I went threw carwash n had undercarriage washed... There is now a musty smell in the car. I don't have a moon roof and when I use a.c I c that there is water under car so guessing the hose to that isn't plugged.. Any help would be great

my floor boards were soaking wet on driver and passenger side, i took it to dealersh;ip and they advised that it was something to do with the air conditioner (the drain was completely clogged with something) which was causing the water to come in and make the floor boards on the driver and passenger side very wet (soaked really). anyway, they fixed it, this was in waynesboro, pa, 17268 /buchanan dodge/ it was under warranty so it didn't cost me to fix it and it has never done it again, i only turned on my a/c once and that is when it must have done it.
just boutht my 2013 Dodge Avenger in July - returned it multiple times with issues - dink in door interior, carpet cut too short and now the biggie... massisve water leak on front passenger side of car, saturation trailing across center hump to driver's side floor. Dealership unsure of problem. At first though windshield, but went to replace it and determined it not to be the cause. Now ripping out the dashbooard and front to determine where leak is - and most likely same problem as mentioned in this blog. My biggest gripe is that this car left the lot with 1 mile on it, its not been off the lot 2 months and has had now three repairs and no hope of getting a replacement vehicle. Makes you wonder about why a manufacturing plant was in so much trouble financially. I feel betrayed, I showed empathy and put faith in an American made product and have not seen anything to support the claim that the manufacurer stands by their product. the dealership claims on their sign board to make a difference - I think I'm feeling the difference... I am dissapointed to say the least.
I have a 2013 Dodge Advenger. Ever time i ran the AC it would flood my front and back floorboards of the drivers side. The dealership said the drain was clogged and it was running down the firewall. It was a simple fix. Blow the drain out and everything is back good. Not sure how long it will last before it happens again but hopefully it is fixed for good. Hope this helps.
