    I got my Model 3 last week. One thing I’ve noticed is it doesn’t leave puddles of water when I park it. My Honda always left a puddle when I used the air conditioner, the Tesla doesn’t. What does it due with the water squeezed out of our Florida air by the air conditioner?

    Mine leaves puddles when parked and also when supercharging. Probably not every time but it certainly does!

    Check the drain to make sure it's not plugged. Otherwise you will get the stinky feet vent smell.

    I wonder if it's so damn hot in Florida that it just evaporates before a puddle even forms. Mine leaves huge water marks everywhere but then again I'm in the Northeast where it's only 90 right now.

    Definitely get plenty of water on the ground when mine is parked. Texas Gulf humidity.

    Even the Model 3 I looked at in the Palo Alto Dealership had a puddle under it, though it was stored inside. Presumably people testing the air conditioner.
