Every time it rain or if I wash the car, lots of water and sitting in the door base when you open it and some are coming in the car, I have taking it to the dealership on four to five times and they have done something, but the problem is still not solve. It's more water in the two front doors than the back doors.

The design of the ignition key is faulty. This vehicle only starts with a proximity interface between the interior starter button and the remote key which is attached to a manual key for the doors. The manual door key attaches to a key ring and the expensive reomte key attaches to the manual key. On 5 different ocasions while walking or exiting my car the remote key has seperated from the manual key and fallen to the ground. I have been lucky and been aware of this when it has happened. This could easliy leave me stranded and in danger due to this design. The key ring holder should be attached the remote device and not the manual key. The dealer offered no solution.
