2003 Toyota Corolla Question: water is leaking into the interior when it rains

 

Question

the water pools mostly on the left side, on the floor of the back seat area, to a lesser extent on the right side (same area) , which seems to be the lowest point of the frame of the car. After running water for 5 minutes all over the roof, there is still now sign of a leak. How can I track down the leak? Thanks

    Does this car have a sunroof? If it does maybe the sunroof drain hose is plugged

    the car does have a sun roof,...but I'm aware of how to keep the drains open...and they are. from reading about a similar problem posted here, it may be from under the hood, ...but I was thinking, maybe it'd be easier to drill some holes in the floor w/a plug and just let the water drain out when it rains hard..what do you think?

    I have this problem as well but i know it comes in from the front, below the windscreen, behind the dash were the vents are. My carpet is ruined and the car stinks. Wow now that i realize it Toyota needs to work on quality their cars are staring to go down hill.
    Maybe all the recalls will help point the new pathway. I hear the new 2011 Camry is so advanced it recalls itself.

    I have researched this problem online and have noticed many people have the same issue with this car. I have made a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and suggest you do the same.
