A leaking cowl (at the base of the windshield) can leak water into the vehicle's cabin. The cowl has to be resealed to stop the leak.

    Have water leakage with water soaking passenger floor mat if car is parked in heavy rain. No problem with light rain while driving.

    same. I goouped it with cauking and bent the vent opening inside so the water no longer leaked into it.

    Leaking windshield cowl that drips into passenger side foot well and stagnates, soaks the carpet and leads to odor.

    Not yet fixed. Surprised that Honda would not have come up with a manufacturing fix for this way before 2006.

    It appears my new 2012 CRV EX is experiencing the same symptons.

    I noticed the passenger carpet was damp and I saw water droplets on the passenger side plastic trim. I initially thought it was from the door mouldings and from opening the passenger door to load the vehicle.

    Further investigation showed that the water was dripping from under the dash. I will contact the dealer and hope for the best. At least I have gained some information from other owners experience.

    Have same problem and into the Honda dealer 3 times - $100 later still no fix - seems like the dealer would know this a common issue
