2009 Mariner door fills with water

Hello! My 09 Mariner's front passenger door fills with water. I've had it to a dealer in Chantilly VA 2x for the problem. They said this is normal. They checked the draining holes and blew air through them. They are clear. Today, after coming back from the dealer and after a good 2 hours of rain, I open the door and it drains so much - I'm talking a gallon or so. It usually occurs when parking on a slight hill with the front end pointing down. I've never seen this much water drain from any of my cars. Any thoughts?

That doesn't sound right. I'd see another dealer about it. There's should be drains in the front and rear of the door.

This has been reported by others. Their fix was to drill drain holes in the doors.

It won't do any good, but filing a complaint with Ford seems like a prudent thing to do. Seems like a design flaw to me. Check the rear hatch/tailgate area as well, as others have mentioned excessive rust there on the later Escapes.
