Water leaks may be noted from the front and/or rear roof area. Our technicians recommend to inspect the roof ditch and sunroof - Check all grommets and plugs, reseal roof seams, and replace the sunroof drain tubes if necessary.

water drains down onto my feet while driving - it passes over the heater core so it's scalding when it hits our feet - happens both driver and passenger. also leaks from the dome lights. Water is also sloshing around ?? somewhere.

Had it in 3 times since purchase (5/2009) all for water coming through dome light and map lights. Water shorted out lights and radio as well. Dealer wants to charge $85 diagnostic fee to "diagnose" the same problem from the previous 3 times. Luckily, the 3 previous were still under warranty, not the case now. After a shouting match at the dealer I contacted the owner of the dealership, and he kindly offered to "fix" the problem @ no charge. Called Chrysler and informed them of their inferior product and asked why there has not been a recall. She explained the process, if Patriot owners want a recall YOU MUST CALL CHRYSLER AND COMPLAIN! They also document your complaint in the event they will pay for repairs(slippery slope as I understand, they may or may not) and/or documentation for the Lemon Law. This issue never gets fixed, it's a band-aid. The sunroof, drains or whatever is supposed to channel the water away is JUNK.
Water leaks from rear dome light into cargo area. Been in shop 4 times. Vehicle has fowl order inside. Dealer jsut called to say they think they have found source of problem and are replacing headliner. When headliner was removed it had mold growing.
