I have noticed that my 2008 TSX drips water from the undercarriage after a 30-35 minute drive with the AC on. I live in SoCal and wasnt sure if this was due to outside heat causing cooler air to turn into water and drip (not sure if thats the best engineering explanation).

When I had a s2k a while ago, the car had a simliar problem and people said that it was normal.

Anyone else experienced this on their car and know how to fix it?

Thanks!

Yep as others have said its 100% normal, if you have a window AC look at the back on a hot day, its either dripping water or has a pool of it sitting in the tray.

Take a look next time you're at a stop light. Particularly right now, since it's summer, you'll notice many cars and trucks around you dripping from their front-end; usually behind the front passenger wheel. That drip is water condensation caused by the a/c system.

It is perfectly normal.

yes as other's wrote-normal. My central a/c does it also. Luckily on the outside of the house.

I think there is a tube on the passenger side subframe that this condensation comes out of. Pretty good idea. I think in my truck the condensation just drips along the firewall and drips however it pleases...terrible idea gm had.
