When it rains I have a leak at the top forward corner of the driver side door jam. The leak splashes off the door interior getting the stearing colum wet, instrument panel wet, driver seat wet and front floor board wet on the driver side. No solution has been attempted yet.

Water leaking in upper corner (closest to windshield) of both doors. Is there a re-call offered to fix this issue? I have a 2008 Wrangler Sahara 2 door...

Both windows are leaking and landing on the door openers...carpet was soaked..very annoying!!!
I actually have a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport and it leaks at both doors but mainly the passenger door. Had it in to be fixed three times so far. Once I get it back and if it leaks it will be the 4th time and at that point a lemon law comes into effect. The passenger door seems to be leaking at the seal and maybe the A pillar and possibly the firewall seam? Not sure exactly where is leaks but looks like these two places could be the culprit. So we will see how Chrysler/Jeep manufacturer handles this.

Noticed a wet drivers seat after one of our rare rainy days. A few days later, I had my wife spray the hose at my roof/windows and I found the leak to be from the top of the drivers side door, about 3 inches back from the front/windshield side of the door. I added weather sealant to fix/reduce the problem. As Phoenix only gets about 8 rainy days a year, I haven't had much opportunity to test it.

Leaks water on left or right passenger side or rear of car. Not all the time, but can't find source. Carpet is moldy and smells. Jeep said today that there is nothing they can do about it.

Everytime it rains I get water on both front seats, door handle, carpets, and dash.
Not fixed. Water pours in from the top of the driver's door and splatters on the door latch. Water on instrument cluster, seat, and steering wheel. Passenger side leaks also but not as much.

Rain water pools on the rails above both driver and passenger doors between the door and the soft top. It will leak inside during turns. If I turn left, the right side leaks in, if I turn right, the left side leaks in. Already had this "fixed" once. This problem is intermittent.

same thing. water comes down pillar and wets the floor. worse on passenger side but also happens on driver side

Passenger floor gets damp or as bad as water standing depending on the amount of rain. We remove all rugs and a try to turn the jeep door towards the sun to dry it out.

Water leaking right above the door lock/handle on both sides. Drips on door lock/handle and down to the floor.
