My dad's Tahoe does this from time to time. Water leaks in and then he drains it when it's full. In true mechanic form he only drains and doesn't repair the issue. But yeah fuck buying that.

These weren't clogged, they were blocked by the weather stripping

This happened to my MKS. I just took a box cutter and cut a small piece out of the weather stripping where the drains were. Don't get how someone engineered it like that!

My '11 Chrysler 200 used to do this. I could hear water sloshing every now and then. Twice a year I would have to use a small screw driver or allen key to clear out the drains.

Personally...I found the water sloshing (sounds of the sea) very therapeutic and actually enjoyed it!

I squirt clean motor oil into the doors to soak down into the pinch welds. Keeps the water out and keeps the bottom of your doors from rusting apart.

Look into cavity wax. Comes with a straw to reach deep into rockers and doors.

That happened to me once with the G8. I kept hearing this sloshing sound from the passenger side, was driving me crazy. I poked around the weather stripping, and sure enough, almost a gallon of water came pouring out. It never happened again.
