It's possible your AC Condenser drain was clogged, and finally decided to relieve itself in your garage. It's located above your transmission.

That would just be water, and explain why there's no odor nor color.

Way I check fluids, If its in the rear it stinks, if its in the front its oily. lol. Since your's is clear I'd only say meth or washer fluid but its neither so I'd just move car, mop it up and see if it returns.
Thats a funny way to remember the differences in fluids. I thought it could be related to the rear end but that is a oil based fluid and this pooling isn't. I'm paranoid to drive it now just when the weather here finally broke go figure my kinda luck

It was dry outside. It's definitely coming from inside not sure if its the car or the plumbing/building

Yeah, it looks like water. Have it tested if you're really concerned. I'll bet it's popping up with the freeze thaw cycle we're having now.

Looks like good old Midwest garage sweat from the the thaw cycle. If it is it means you have drainage working its way under your floor. Overtime it can cause damage as I had to have my floor lifted and still get some sweat but not enough to puddle the floor.

To confirm it's from the car or not, park the ZL1 outside for a few days and see what's under it then. Also tasting the fluid can give you an indication of what it is...just don't swallow the stuff.

Hi

When you look better, more precisly on the floor (pictue) you see older water marks then the new actual one, which is wet. I was working a lot of time as a roofer, and was specialised to find leak in the roof. In my opinion, this marks on the fllor, looks like older inrus of water from outside.
Maybe also from some plumbing problems. When you say, the last time it was dry.

I think the marks outside the puddle are just residue drying from this incident

Pull that car out, let her run for 20 mins or so.

If no leaks and everything is full, it's not the car that peed on the floor.

There are no fluids in the car of that color, unless you have changed the SC and radiator to water, and if it was stored over the winter u'd have bigger problems. The closest would be brake/clutch/rear end fluid and that's enough to almost empty the whole system. I am betting its just garage sweat as you can see the crystallization on the edge of the puddle.

Check your washer bottle. Bluish tint sounds like the washer fluid bottle may have cracked due to the cold. The stuff isn't supposed to freeze but most dealers top it off with water or a watered down mix.
