Audi, Q3 2017 leaking when raining.

I have a 2017 Audi Q3. I bought it two years ago and it presently has 53,000 miles on it. I loved it until I discovered that when it’s raining hard there is a leak on the driver side door. There’s no recalls on it? At this point what should I do?

5.0

Audi A3 is a great used car.

Just purchased this Audi A3 premium plus Quattro S line from Beaverton Audi, and couldn’t be happier with the car. It’s Fun, Sporty, and handles well.
