    New member and first time Toyota owner. I just bought my SR5 exactly three weeks ago today, have already put about 1200 miles on it and I love it!...but I just have one minor safety hazard related issue: so the heat/AC is manual and I have water spouting out from my front defrost vent as well as the rear seat console vents, (it's exactly as if it were "raining" inside the cab). This has happened on two occasions and both times I had the temp control set one click away from max AC, the vent set all the way to defrost, with the fan, AC and recirc buttons "off". It was rather warm and somewhat humid but this should not be happening with any brand-new vehicle, IMO. The first time was about two weeks ago and was, in my estimation, at least a minor safety hazard as I was going about 60mph and thought that there was a sudden light to medium rain. I instantly turned on my wipers and when it did not clear my windshield I had to quickly slow my speed to about 30-35mph. I was thankful that I had some shop towels within reach and was able to wipe the inside of my window. The second time was this morning at about 5:30am on my way home from work but was not nearly as bad as the first instance. Any suggestions on what the issue could be and possibly how to solve it would be awesome. Thanks.

    Update 7/6/17: Boy do I feel a bit idiotic: so after a few early morning rides home from work with similar conditions as stated above I could not reproduce the "raining" effect...until...this morning, I rolled down my rear window and WAH-LAH! BAM!! POW!!! Here comes the water! Seems that all of the condensation on the roof of my cab was making its way right into my cab. Case closed, (thanks again for the suggestions from the concerned few though.)

    Welcome bud. Wait, there's water squirting out the vents? What? :confused: Take it into the dealership.

    Yep. I was already thinking the same thing since it has that nice warranty and all but I figured I might be able to get a heads up on here first. Thanks for the welcome.

    I'm wonder what that cabin air filter looks like. Maybe it's not in its spot completely or missing or moldy LOL just curious.
