WATER LEAKS INSIDE THE CAR WHEN IT RAINS OUTSIDE OR WHEN I GO THROUGH A CAR WASH. THE ISSUE WASN'T DETECTED AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE HOWEVER IT WAS NOTICED SEVERAL MONTHS LATER DURING A PERIOD OF FREQUENT AND HEAVY RAIN. THE ISSUE BEGAN WITH WATER DRIPPING ONLY NEAR THE BRAKE PEDAL, HOWEVER OVER TIME THE ISSUE HAS SPREAD TO AN AREA BETWEEN THE DRIVER'S DOOR AND FRONT WINDSHIELD. WATER NOW LEAKS FROM BOTH AREAS WHEN IT RAINS AND/OR WHEN I DRIVE THROUGH A CAR WASH. IF I PARK ON AN INCLINE, SOMETIMES THE WATER WILL DRAIN FROM THE CAR. ALSO, THE WATER HAS STAINED MY INTERIOR, LEAVES A MOLDY SMELL AND OVER TIME I WILL ASSUME THAT THE ISSUE WILL SPREAD EVEN FURTHER OR MAY DAMAGE THE INTERIOR ROOF. BECAUSE WATER LEAKS FROM ABOVE, IT SOAKS ALL OF THE BUTTONS ON THE DOOR (WINDOWS, LOCKS, ETC) AS WELL AS THE BUTTON TO HEAT THE SEAT - HOPEFULLY THAT DOES NOT CREATE AN ELECTRICAL ISSUE.
