Volkswagen Golf trapping water in doors – a design fault?

My 2012 Volkswagen Golf traps water inside all four doors after washing or after. The problem is quite bad and, when I open the doors, the water quite literally pours out. I'm due to visit my local dealer this week. Should they be able to resolve this under warranty or do I have to live with it if it is a design issue?
Thank you.

Standard thing on all Golfs and Golf based cars. That's how they are designed. But what can happen is that the wax protection inside the doors blocks the drain holes. So its a good idea to poke them through periodically with a wooden kebab stick (wood so as not to damage the paint).
