My year old Caliber has been at the dealership for a week. They finally discovered the leak is coming from the drainage tubes. This is after my dome light filled with water and front and back floors have been completely sopping wet. Is Dodge aware of this problem?

I had water on the front drivers side floors last year took it to Dealership they said it was the drain tubes for the sunroof (cost $185) Got it back then it had water in the back drivers side took it back 5 more times last year and we were so disgusted. After the 6th time we thought it was fixed they replaced the drain tubes. Now it is leaking again pools of water in the front and back going back to the dealership again this week. I think Chrysler should recall these cars and fix them for nothing. I am disgusted.

Leaking everywhere at this point, rear seat area, pillars and front interior light. There should be a recall on this!!!
1 month old when rear floor soaked after heavy rain. Then front light fixture and headliner filled with water. Now sunroof has a short and opens when it feels like it! Had tubes cleared twice, light fixed, headliner cleaned. Going back for new wire harness for sun roof next week.
Sunroof leak started first year of ownership. Multiple trips to dealer for cleaning of tubes. Quoted hundreds of dollars to "fix" the problem but we're aren't doing it. This is a serious design flaw. There needs to be a recall.

I am so sick of this car, I will drown in this car eventually, water pouring in on headliner sides, seats soaking wet, floor boards soaking wet, mold on headliner, very embarrassed in this car. What can we do? Brought this mess to dealer and had to pay 100.00 to have tubs cleaned out, then 2 months later dripping again, even worse. Want to get rid of car. What a lousy car.

still leaking after having to dealership. No solution yet
water pooling on left passenger floor board. read reviews that it is the drain tubes for sunroof. going to my mechanic to get it fixed. Very frustrating to have a pool of water on floor when I carpool kids!
Purchased used, began second year when mileage went over 50,000. Now coming through the overhead light fixture. Standing water rear floorboards, soaked drivers side mats. Drains from the sun roof are not draining, or rather are draining inside the vehicle. Was told this is common with these cars and also Jeeps. Could this be a recall issue?
bought my 2009 caliber 3 years ago,right away I noticed the headliner over the windshield was all warer marks and in the interior light also water. Took it back to Lrr in Windham and they said they fixed it,but a few weeks later it started again and worse,took it back and Lee says your warranty is up so it will cost 185.00 to fix the same problem again!!!I was so mad to think they sold me this car knowing it had these prblems and then won't even help you get it fixed. I saw all the post from people who had it fixed multible times only to have it still leak. Finally my husband sealed the sunroof permanately shut,so now I have no sunroof but it is dry. There are several problems with these cars from leaks to noisy jounce bumber end shields which is another big problem but they won't recall!!

After we had a big downpour, I had gotten in the car to head off and I noticed about an inch of water in the back passenger side floorboard. Every time it rains, this happens. We do have a sunroof, the kind that will open and let the air in. We had some more heavy rain these last couple of days. When I got in it, of course there was a pool of water over an inch deep. When I took off and then came to a stop, I noticed the water pool up at the front of the front passenger floorboard. Obviously, this is not uncommon with these cars. I would love to know how to clear the drain line before I take a big nail to this thing and start pounding holes through the carpet/floorboard.
2009 Dodge Caliber Leaking, floor mats always wet. Now the driver's seat is soaked. It has been raining all day.
Still not fixed. Local dealer said that the drain tubes regularly become plugged and its just a normal event to have them "blown out" a couple times a month at 100 dollars a pop.
