Um, take your water jugs out of your cargo area ? Seriously though, never heard this one before.

That's weird, I can hear it in my 2010, but only when it's cold! What's up with that!

Re: Hear Water Moving in my Car

If it sounds like it's coming from underneath your dash it could be water sloshing around in your heater core and it's hoses. I had the same thing with a few cars.

if he can hear the gas sloshing around in the fuel tank that is UNDERNEATH the car while inside, Superman is calling him, because he wants his hearing back.

Re: Hear Water Moving in my Car

Have you checked the level of your coolant? Low coolant level good cause it. Maybe someone at the factory didn't completely fill it all the way?

Re: Hear Water Moving in my Car

Its air trapped in the heater core u can change ur coolant and it will go away. Mine was doing the same thing mechanic at toyota dealership told me thats its common.
He said when u turn the air bubbles move from side to side and sounds like a waterfall in dash lol. U have to flush out all the water out of the heater core as well.
