    Seems I have found a puddle of "liquid" right behind the right front tire...feels like water- but just want to make sure. Anyone else ever find this?

    (No, I almost sure I did not have the a/c on either)

    Thanks!

    It is water from the AC. The pump still comes on without the AC selected "on". This is done to keep the oil on the seals of the AC pump.

    Seems like the a/c does a lot more than just cooling the air in the cabin in the summer...turns on when defrost is on, turns on to keep oil seals, etc...

    Yeah, the AC system is one of those "use it or lose it" systems. It will eventually fail it isn't cycle periodically.
