Water in car is bad stuff. On anything but a new car, water in passenger foot well makes me think about drainage problems from the HVAC evaporator core. Believe the other Civic X forum has had one or two reports of water, but I don't think they were front foot well.

So I was going to clean my passenger floor mat and I was something that said "frame number" I open it up and there is water on the floor!
So I just checked mine, and there is all kinds of insulation in there too, and from feeling around it goes pretty far back, if you see water I'd bet your insulation is also wet, which means mold. I'd call Honda ASAP and take it back to your dealership.
800-999-1009 option 7 to report a problem with your car.
Call them first thing Monday! Mold and water in your car is no joke, if there is wiring in there too, you could be looking at a big mess

What is that flap/cover? What's it's purpose? Is it described in the manual?
Believe it covers a VIN stamped into the floor pan. I think it's supposed to be an anti-theft/security tactic to make it much harder to mask/alter the VIN of the car.

I've seen it in other Honda's I've owned a CRV and in a Crosstour, so it's not something super new. But there should not be water in there. I checked mine, and its nice and dry

Finally got around to checking mine today after driving in the rain. It was dry as a bone.


Did they figure out why yours was wet?
This op only posted this one post and has not ever come back. Making me wonder about the authenticity of it, or if he just got that photo from somewhere and planted it here to try to freak out owners

This is one of the reasons I like to avoid some of the first batches :D

There could be more cases of this happening out there with how much of a high volume product it is.

It happened to us this past weekend in St Augustine, FL. Driving rain and/or standing water maybe the issue, forced into cabin from underneath while driving? Rain had not been issue previously (to my knowledge) and the puddles/standing water we drove through were not particularly deep or unusual, vs. previous times. Rubberized floor mats and seats had no water, so not a window blow-in leak or coming from above, in all likelihood, but passenger front and back floors were soaked and "mushy" with water.
Took to dealer once home in Charlotte and they vacuumed out water - to some, small degree, since once I arrived home I had to use 10 bath towels under carpet, after pulling the molding off and lifting carpet, to soak up the standing water and remove the most of the moisture (so much for that crack detailing staff). They looked at the various weep-holes and checked the doorframes and seals, but found nothing unusual.
Dealer said could not recreate with their carwash and power washer, so they sprayed some mold/odor inhibitor on the carpet and told us to "let them know if it occurs again." "Made a note of it" in my records- some small consolation. Per earlier comment, I just hope it has not impacted any of the electrical components/wires that run along floor, under the carpet.
Interesting comment about possible AC condensate - will bring that up should this happen again. If it does, going to be one unhappy customer, for certain.

Omg, this is awful. Water can create some serious problems for your car. I really know what I am talking about, because I had exactly the same problem. I had a very high level of humidity inside the car, and it started to get covered in mold. There was a terrible smell because of it, and I decided that I have to fix it as soon as possible. This is why I called these guys from Mold Removal Company Serving Mississauga & GTA , and they have removed it. After that, I went to an auto service and fixed the problem with the water, and now everything is fine.
