I got my GV80 last spring, so didn’t have much use for the heater. But I’ve noticed lately that when I use the heater some water comes out of the very rear vent in the cargo area. It could also be from exterior rain coming in while heat is on. Just yesterday I noticed the carpet behind the driver’s seat is damp as well as if water was coming out if the vent under the seat.
The issue now is that the dampness in the car creates condensation on the windows, which then drips down in other areas.
Anybody else experience this?
I plan on having dealer investigate, but wanted to query this forum first.

Yes, please have dealer investigate, fix, and relate here.
It sounds like rain water is getting into the ductwork through the air intake below windshield.

Definitely an issue for the dealer to investigate and correct. I haven't had that issue.

Update: After monitoring the water from the vents issue, I actually think it’s now rain related. I don’t have to be driving in the rain, but if it rains overnight and I start my car the next morning, then water comes out of the cargo area vents, and the carpet behind the driver’s seat is wet as well.
So, the dealer did drive 40 miles to my house today to pick it up for service. Left me a nice 2022 G80 as a loaner.
I’ll update when I know more.
