Rainwater leaked into the vehicle, collecting in the passenger footwell, shorting out several electrical components. I understand VW/Audi vehicles have a history of this occurring due to firewall/pollen filter/sunroof deficiencies which allow this to happen and they and their dealerships are very uncooperative in even acknowledging such a problem exists in the design of these vehicles. This is an obvious inherent design flaw. Audi is very unfair to consumers to deny such a problem exists and they should be held accountable. At no time during any regular service was it ever suggested that these drain plugs should be cleaned - while the cleaning of the sunroof rails were"?" no owner could possibly be aware that such a disaster awaits them if these inaccessible drain plugs aren't cleaned.
