Jeep repeatedly leaks after it rains. Was told that the sunroof drains need to be cleared regularly--I do not know of any other car that requires this kind of maintenance. Wish I had discovered earlier that others were experiencing the same problem. This is a drviing hazard as the water dosn't come through the map light until you start moving. I am not easily startled but this often startles me because you don't expect to be doused with a steady stream of water while your car is moving! Reported this to the NTSB.
leaking water from drivers door to passengers door and the floor boards. the map light is always filled with water when it rains. Very irrigating when driving.

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....

I bought this new and had a slight leak twice . I thought I made a mistake and left the sun roof open a little. After a rain I was socked by a waterfall coming from my map lights. I called the dealership and they said the same thing.... clogged drain tubes. He cleaned them and for a while no leaks. Then it happened again.. Back to the dealership after a call to Jeep. This is 2014 and I am still having the problem. Socked carpet, bad smell, water marks on roof. I was told there is nothing Jeep can do but fix it again... the seventh time !!!!!! I was told my time had run out. I disagree since this problem was never fixed... the last time this happened a tec. was sent out that takes care of water leaks. He stated the wrong tubes were installed and there had been problems with them. He changed them and said that should take care of my problem. Well guess what ????? Still leaking.

Water leaks from dome light when raining
Have had an issue with water leaking from day one!! Started leaking into light and has continually gotten much worse. Now my floorboards in the back are saturated every time it rains. Would never buy another Jeep or recommend anyone else buy one!
My jeep compas's sunroof leaks when it rains and when I was my car. I have had it "fixed" at my local dealer 4 or 5 times now and it still continues. I have never been told the drainage system needs maintenance, like I read in other comments. I have always been told that I have a clog or damage. Everything has "supposedly" been replaced but I have lost all trust with the local dealer and I don't appreciate the way they treat me.

I believe the sunroof is leaking through the map lights. I"ve tried cleaning out the tray and the drain in the sunroof. couldn't find a drain to clean out.

Water leaking from front map light and down into electronics controlling starter, radio, etc... Had original drains and grommets replaced, still leaked, dealer suggested replacing sunroof. Sunroof replaced. $800 and 6 months later, water pouring from map light again after a downpour. Back to the dealership....

I have only owned the car for less than two years and I just figured out that it leaks. Every summer rain left my car damp and moist like a bathroom after a hot shower. I am heading to the dealership today.
