I had the same problem with mine. The dealer ordered a replacement taillight and it came in the next day, of course they forgot the gasket so I had to go back a second time. So far so good with the replacement.

Alright, now I am REALLY curious as when they actually fixed these taillights at the assembly line... Please let us know whether your taillight assembly has internal condensation or not and the vehicle manufacture date (Located on your driver's door jamb on the VIN plate)

I'll start first...

No condensation as of yet; washed it a couple of times and still no sign of it.
Manufactured on 06/12

GO!

Success!! I brought it in to the dealer today with a TON of condensation. This is the same dealer that told me they can't do anything until they witness condensation. The guy came out took one look at it and said his guys couldn't take a look at it today. I said WTF just order the parts you see the condensation and my car is within the TSB range. He told me to come back Thursday morning. Again I said just order the damn parts since they're not stocked items. No he made me make an appt. Fine, I had an early one set up. Sure as hell I get a phone call back this afternoon "Uh sir we went ahead and ordered the parts we figured we'd save you the down time. They won't be in until the end of next week they're on back order". They acted like they came up with the order the parts ahead idea by themselves and that they were doing me a favor. Sometimes these guys amaze me.

GO!
I don't think that well tell you much because not all units were affected, you really have to go the the serial numbers here. Mine was 03/12 and I have not seen the problem despite being in several downpours, having washed it multiple times with a relatively high pressure hose and going through a brushless carwash. I keep meaning to take the taillights off to inspect them, but haven't done it yet.

I'm just noticing it now. This is a March production car, received 5/31. It's been a pretty dry summer.
