It's normal but 24+ hours seems like a lot. There are little drains on the underside of the door. Maybe check to see if they're clogged. That's all I can think of.

What a funny problem. What I normally do is roll all my windows down after a car wash and wipe all the rubber squeegees. It wouldn't make it 100% dry so when you roll up your windows it'll still leave a streak. But it'll keep the rubber dry enough to not leave huge blotches on my window. After a couple minutes in the sun, they should be all dry enough to roll up/down.

Well, it depends if the car is in the sun/warmth or not.

It's just like every other car. Pretty sure you learn this after your first car wash ever. Never roll down windows after a car wash. I walk into the fast food joint if needed, but will never roll them down after a wash. Waste of money if you do lol.

Are y'all referring to water on the inside or outside of the glass?
For me, I notice it on the inside of my glass. It leaves a streak on the inside of my glass. Is that normal?

Deff not normal. No water should be on the inside of your window. Unless the water got on the plastic squeegee thing on the inside of the car. How much water is it?

Nope, not inside. There shouldn't be any water on the inside. You should get that checked out.
