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
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?
Our area has had ice storms, snow, and lots of freezing rain,so I'm driving around with 4 inches of water on my back floor, and no idea how much under the spare tire because I taped all around the tail lights, the trunk: any place water could get in, and it still gets in. I saw a YouTube video on how to fix it, starting with drilling holes to let the water out, but if you drill underneath, you get water in the face, and if you drill inside the trunk, you're drilling through water. Really stinks because I like this car! Being a granny, I can't fix it. Would a body shop fix it because the guys at the garage said it's not an engine problem..
Now that it is winter time and it actually started raining again, I noticed that the rear floor mats had puddles of water under neath and on top of them. I vacuumed out the water for now just to see if I can figure out where the water is coming from. There is no trace of water going along the doors or windows. There was water in the trunk and where the spare tire is at.
Same thing as everyone else. I know nothing about cars and we just baught this one. I went on vacation and left it at my parking lot praying the rain stops while i'm gone. I literally put tape all around the lights on the back. Still came home to the odor it has when ever this happens and a pool on my trunk and passenger back seat floor.
I had these vent like holes in the sides of the trunk right behind the rear tires.. So everytime I drove when it was wet out, water in the trunk do to vents.. So I sprayed expanding foam in them to cure this problem after pulling out the trunk carpet to let dry.. That's when I discovered these so called ill placed vents...
My rear seat is flooded with water everytime it rains. Noticing the problem only recently and have not had this before. Dont want to waste my money to fix this problem since I have been fixing so many stuff already in this car. lol.. Will dispose it and buy a new camry or accord.
