Have had and still have this problem with water coming thru my map light. The say it has to do with the drain in the sunroof and if you blow them out every couple of months you won't have a problem. Was never told when buying this that I would have to do it. I am in contact with Jeep and the dealer and hope it will be resolved before my warrenty is up. I am ready to trade it in....

This was my very first new car, I've been having this issue also. The Map lights leak all the way to the door Just recently noticed the driver side floor boards all the way to rear floor boards are soaked. Took this in on 2 occasions to hears the same line that your moon roof needs to be cleaned out I even made and attachment to my air compressor just for the drain lines. At 36000 my warranty expired so now they want $120 find the leak,I'm sure to let me know to clean my moon roof drain lines.I just think that this seems to be a factory defect. that nobody wants to own up to. Im done with Jeeps and all moon roofs forever.

bought car used in Dec. 2012 and the first heavy snow water began pouring through the front map light. My jeep has a sunroof so I took back to dealer and was told it needed a new seal... this was in Feb. just 2 months after I bought it. The leak continued and back and forth to dealer. This last time was October 8th, 2013 and I was told that this is normal for cars with sunroofs.. what??!!! and that the tubes get leaves in them.. so they cleaned them out... I left the next morning on a six hour trip in the rain and water started spewing through onto the floor of my jeep under my glove box. 2" of water all the way to the back seat passenger side. I will be back to the dealer on Monday... I don't see a jeep in my future

I have the same problem. Leaking into the map light. I checked the sunroof and there doesn't seem to be a problem with water there. I wasn't sure how it was getting in. It's rainy season in FL so this worries me. I don't think I will be buying another Jeep. Had a Jeep Liberty before and the windows kept falling down.

Leaking sunroof is an ongoing issue. They keep cleaning the tubes and a different dealer told me this morning that there was a service bulletin about the problem. Water gushes into the car and leaks down around light fixtures. It is awful.
