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...
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.

My 2015 Rubicon drivers side floor board was soaked since last weeks heavy rains. Only noticed it yesterday and have been laying down newspapers to soak up water. Good thing Hurricane Juaquin didn't hit Long Island...may have had a 4x4 fish tank. Still love my Rubicon!

Driver's door leaks at top front. The drip falls onto the door handle area and splashes onto the steering wheel, seat and floor. Even in modest rain the seat becomes very wet. Not noticeable when driving, only when parked. I bought this Jeep new in 2007 and it has only leaked once before now. It now leaks at every rain. I have not solved this yet but found a youtube solution that I will try. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAQi4Uzi8PY
Leak through passenger side. Soaks the floor board carpet...actually, it pools on floor.

I have a continual nagging leak coming in above the driver's door. I have had it looked at numerous times without any success. I have had to resort to putting a towel below the drip for when I'm driving in the rain and then putting a tarp over my vehicle when I'm parked at home or at work. I don't know how to resolve this issue. I have had it back to the dealer on numerous occasions, again without success. Is there a sealant or a rubber gasket or weather stripping that would work for this problem. I love my Jeep, but hate this leak. I'm doing a good job in avoiding damage to the carpet or preventing any internal rusting, but what a huge hassle.

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.
