Question Door drains

We have just purchased a new 2018 envision. We are experiencing water emptying we the doors are opened. Door are suppose to drain but not only when opened. We took it our local dealer and showed the service manager and as noted on this site others with same problem, was told they were not aware of this occurring with any others and would send the video we supplied to GM. This issue needs to be investigated and corrected as we as with the others live in a cold climate and freezing is an issue for 4 or 5 months a year. This situation is also promoting environment for rust to form more quickly than it should. My request is to anyone with this issue to post so we can get an idea how widespread this issue is, and if you don't have this problem , what is the difference between our vehicles. Thank you

Our 2017 Envision holds water in all four doors and will not drain unless you open the doors

My 2019 Envision also keeps the water in all the doors (more in the front doors). It drains the water by keeping the doors open. It drains better if the car is sloped with the front of the car lower than the back of the car. The lowest drain hole is at the front of the door.

I have a 2017 Envision with the same problem. All four doors will not drain after a rain. When I open the doors, each door will drain water for about 30 seconds each. I have brought the vehicle back to the dealer who sublet the repair to a company called LeakPro. They claimed the driver door drains were being blocked by somethings and applied glue to hold up the material that was causing the block. However, that did not fix the problem. From my perspective as an accountant, and by no means qualified to diagnose the problem, what I see is the rubber foam attached to the vehicle body that seals the door when shut, also seals the drain holes at the bottom of the door. I am concerned that the bottom of these doors will eventually rust and likely just after the warranty runs out. Does anyone have a solution to this problem that I can share with my dealer? I have another appointment tomorrow to look at this problem. I have videos of the problem if anyone would like to see them.

We have a 2018 and I have never noticed this as an issue. I don't recall it ever had water draining after opening the doors but perhaps I did not notice. Although the car is garaged it is often in the rain in Jersey. I need to service it soon and will also ask the dealer (they are pretty good) if this is an issue that has been brought to their attention.

Door drains......

My 2017 also drains water from the doors when opened only. I have got into opening all four doors when parking in the garage after driving in the rain.

I have owned a 2018 Buick Envision since April 2018. Now have over 31,000 on it. Never had this issue, and I have parked this outside when traveling. Water never pours out of the door - even if it goes through a car wash. Maybe I am fortunate, but no issues at all so far. Not even a rattle. Just a well built SUV as far as I am concerned.

I have just bought a 2020 Envision. All four doors drain water after a rainfall. Dealership say they never heard of this problem despite I have read on this site it has been going on for a few years. Is there any solutions to stop this. I am afraid of the water freezing in the winter.
