My new 06 V

First of all glad to be on here, but... Aaaaaghhhh!
I just brought my V home yesterday after trading in my 03 supercharged G35 with 389rwhp, which I loved. After going to lunch today in the snow, I noticed a wet spot on the cloth area between the windshield and driver side window. It was in the area of the airbag logo. I thought it was nothing, maybe some snow got in when I opened the door. It was getting to me at work. So 2 hours later I went to check it and now it got 5 times larger???? A leak in my car? Was it made on a Friday? I called the dealer and of course he said I never heard of that before.... but we will take a look at it on Monday. By the time I got home the enitre panel was wet. I took the panel off, unhooked the Bose speaker and let it dry off. Snow was melting and I think, coming in through the windshield. So my frst day with my new V wasn't the best.....

Has anyone heard of anything like this?

The only thing that leaked in my V was the radiator. New radiator at abour 11,000 miles. My car was probably made on a Tuesday but the electronics were made by a disgruntled employee on leave without pay.

Thumbs up PillarA leak and WHeel Hop

TSBs on both issues- Apparently GM was chintzy with the sealant on the roof and windshield molding. Parked an O6 - V in my garage last December. Brought the car in for the Sub Frame bushing replacement TSB - little more road noise and you feel the road more, but I can now smoke the tires - A glazier at my local caddy dealer fixed the leak - another TSB - Total Cost $0. Luv drivin this beast.

2006 leak

I have a 2006 5000 miles and all is well. Fun car!! My black paint is also off the nav controls and the only problem is the CD changer has stolen 2 of my cd.s and will not give them back. I am awaiting the dealer's call back but that is another story.

My car was leaking too. Probably because I ran over a screw. Goodyear replaced my F1 runflat for $87.00. (because it still would not hold air after the patch job) Beats paying $350.00.

Wow, that is disturbing. Make sure you riide the dealer until it's 100% fixed. Don't take anything less. Good Luck.
