Here's my problem, the ice builds up at the bottom of my a-piller on top of the rocker panelís/side skirts. When you go to open the front door the lower front part of the front doors hits the ice built up on the rocker and bends the lower part of the door. As well as scraps and makes all kinds of noise. The only way to get in the front doors is to force the ice out using the font door as an ice pick.
I took it to the dealer and I'm not going to get in to the conversation I had with the adviser but he was very rude and told me that was normal. I should just "clean it" I asked him how I can do that if I can't open the door with out damaging it.
The ice is coming from the front windshield and the cowl as the water melts it runs down and pools up there. It's a drainage issue with the cowl. I checked for leaves blocking the cowl drain so I know thatís not the problem. I just think it's got to do with the design I was hoping some other people in Canada or the northern states have had similar problems and might be able to help.
I have the same problem, as well as an abundance of ice/sluch build up on/under the running boards. The only room there is between the tire and the build up is the room the tire makes when it rubs on it. Don't think there is anything we can do about this other than not driving it in the winter! Seems like the ground effects catch and hold a lot of slush crap. Add it to the complaint list
Mine does it too, we have had temps in the single digits for days which is making it worse. If I had a heated garage to park it in at night that would fix it. But I don't so I have just delt with it carefully getting in and out.
