Report: Flooding in trunk and floor boards
Dodge Neon Problem
Average Mileage: 96,714 mi (20,000 mi - 195,000 mi)
The trunk seems to fill with water when it rains or you wash ir, then runs under the back seat and floods the floor boards, front and back, this causes mold, mildew and rust, not to mention oder. the problem is water leaks in around the tail light seals and bolts also around the seal of the trunk. Chrysler is aware of this problem but no recalls and they wont correct it. It is a manufactureers defect. a little silicone around the tail light seal and bolts, and re-seal the weather stripping seems to work but elbow grease is the only way to get the water and mold out... Thanks chrysler for your help....NOT if you google this problem you will find hundreds of same stories, i contacted chrysler and just got a email saying take it to the dealer and let them check it. I already did that a few times and they just play dumb... i fixed it myself
Have always had a wet spot in passenger side wheelwell. Also backseat floor on passengerside. I use drying crystals (like you hang in a closet) and pray for dry weather.
everytime it rains or I was the car I get water in the trunk and then the back seat and back floor boards get wet, Ive tried the caulking around the lights but it still does it, any other recommendations?

Second time in two years: Back driver's side floor is soaked, so I empty the trunk and there's about four inches of water under the spare. From some rain or snow last week. Everything soaked! First time it happened, I thought I'd left the back windows open until I looked in the trunk. So what's a Granny on Social Security to do?

Water fills trunk and back floor when it rains. Mold, Musty odor and smell occur when this happens.
