I've heard of someone having water in the rear panels or something like that. My girlfriends 06 ford five hundred gathered water in her rear doors. I drilled a couple small holes on the lowest point of each door to drain cause it didn't go away

thanks for the heads up some years ago I went to a Ford dealer for parts ,a man& his wife were there the whole trunk was like a swimming pool ! it wasn't the first time ! he refused to take the car & left it in the middle of the floor ........ was a brand new car , the manager handled it wrong & the people got even more angry I left as it was headed for trouble I just cant remember what model it was ? I hope this doesn't happen again I like the car but I,m not drilling any holes in a 2013 let them fix it will let you know how it turns out will get a garden hose & spray the front windows & rear area & see what happens

clean out the drain holes in the bottom of the door. Might have gotten cloged with leaves, pine tree needles etc.

I can't speak for the coupe but the vert's are identical because they use a lot of similar components on the S197 chassis. I would try removing those plugs, my rear quarters filled with water last year, and I had to vacuum out the water and then suck up the dirt clogging the drain holes.
