Dampness inside the vehicle may be the result of a water leak, most commonly caused by improperly sealed body seams. Once the source of the leak has been determined the affected area should be properly sealed.

    Our new Journey has been leaking into the vehicle from down through the headliner, the rear heating vent, from the rear DVD player, from the sunglasses visor and the side-impact air bag compartments. This first happened two months ofter we bought it brand-new off the lot. It has since been "fixed" three times and has reoccurred. The last two repairs I've been told they "adjusted" the sunroof- whatever that means. The first time it happened, I was told that the drains had not been installed properly at manufacturing. I'm not waiting for it to rain again to see if the leak has been permanently fixed, though I'm not holding my breath.

    Buyer beware if you're looking at a Dodge with a sunroof!

    Noticed it before, but thought it was melted snow. Had heavy rain in the past couple of days, I found the rear floor compartment behind the driver's seat full of water. Waiting for tomorrow to call dealer.. I'm happy with this Journey, I'll think twice about buying another Dodge.

    Floor on driver side is always wet. I thought I had fixed the leak by sealing a plug in the floor board, but its wet again.... The floor box behind driver seat is always full of water. Dodge said oh well your over your 30,000 mi warranty sorry!

  • Its not fixed. Every time it rains, my feet get wet when I get in. Now Dodge says they don't have to pay for it. I've driven Dodges since 1995, and I'm considering a damn Nissan because of this.

    Water under driver's seat, though it was snow as it started in winter but has continued into spring. So sick of this car.

    Passenger side floor compartment has standing water. I am always emptying it and drying it out only to find more water. Very annoying. Going to contact dealership to see what can be done.
