Seems like these guys who replaced your taillights are the same guys who over tightened them at the factory. They were probably fired from the factory and are now working at your local dealership.

Bring it back, or go to another dealer.

I had the passenger side light replaced a month ago. I just noticed the driver's side had a little condensation after a car wash . It went away, but I will make a b line to the dealer next time I see it.

My car is in the 2900 range of production, and so far, (crosses fingers) I haven't had this issue. It has only rained lightly here twice in the 2 months since I picked the car up. We had about 70MM (almost 3") of rain in 2 hours a couple of days ago, and they're fog free. I hope they stay that way.

My D/S had enough in it that there was pooling water in the bottom. I took it to the dealer 2 weeks ago and they ordered a new one no questions asked. However, they said a couple days and I haven't gotten a phone call yet. I'm gonna have to call them and get the butts in gear

These cars were rushed..all of them yours mine, every brz frs. plain simple. look at this forum.

I happen to have the same fit and finish- if you wanna pick it out, body panel spacing is not symmetrical, there are uneven gaps, parts like valvetrain, oil valves, this should have been worked out in test.

Walked out to my car today and the passengers side tail light was completely hosed... so gotta take it back to the dealership again. Ugh. Scion should really throw you a bone with some sort of free swag for having to put up with these issues.

Just noticed it on mine for the first time... so is scion fixing this issue for free? I'll just bring it up when I go on for my oil change and hope that there's condensation in there to prove it.

Take pictures of it if you can; better than walking in there empty handed and complain. lol

Is there a copy or number for the TSB anywhere? I'm going to the dealership today and don't have much faith in them...
