Water comes in and leaks down A pillar and then down to the floor leaving the carpet soggy and a mildew smell, I pulled my carpet to dry out,I'll re-install once there is a solution
I have had this problem since I purchased the Jeep new in 2011. The leak is on the passenger side floor. The water does not show up on the heavy duty floor mats but under it directly on the carpet. I have recently had to have mold remediation done because of it. any suggestions?

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...
water comes in. passenger side carpeting soaked.
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.

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.

Bought the Jeep used. Floors were wet when I bought it. Now I know why.

Left side door - when it rains I can see the water running in over the plastic cover on the door jam. I am assuming it's a bad seal somewhere. Carpet gets soaked and now stinks.

When it rains at a bit more than a sprinkle for any amount of time my Jeep wrangler retains a great amount of water in both floor boards. At least 2 inches deep when it rains very hard for a long time. After contacting the local Jeep dealer we have found that this has been an ongoing problem for several years with no permanent fix from the Chrysler corporation. I have wanted a Jeep all my life. I finally invested in a 2014 Wrangler Sport once my children were out of the house and must say that I am very disappointed that there is an issue that has been going on for so long with apparently no concern from the corporation to resolve this issue permanently and continue to manufacturing new Jeeps with the same issues. There has to be some lemon law that comes in to play here.

2015 Jeep Willy 4-door, has leaked every time it rains since the day I bought it brand new. Dealership tried to fix over and over without any change. Put door weather stripping in my door to keep it from leaking. That was enough, was finally approved for a Lemon to replace. If anyone else is having the same problems, process the Lemon!!

I have a lake in my floor board every time it rains. My husband took the plug out on bottom of each side. Water is literally an inch or 2 deep on drivers side. Less on passengers side but still wet. I also cant tell where its coming from. When i took it to have an upgrade on computer done and tires rotated they said it wasnt inder warranty at38,000 miles. Noone explained tht this was going on with Almost every jeep sold. I love the jeep and hate tht it has ruined my carpet and i worry about other issues tht could result from it. Its wrong when u spend 43,000$ on a vehicle for it to have such problems. Jamie brown. 6786165727. It should be a recall. Period.
Drivers door A-Pillar leak...has been in 3 times...has not rained yet...more this week.
Every time it rains both drivers side and passenger side fill up with water in our 2011 Jeep wrangler unlimited 4x4. Is there a recall

The very first time I noticed it i took it back to the dealership on a Saturday for them to was it and noticed that my floor mats were wet. Since then when it rains or when my car is washed my floor boards are wet. Occasionally my drivers side seat belt is wet as well.
