    If it's not the heater core leaking or the a/c drain stopped up and no sun roof, windshield leak is the most likely suspect.

    If enough water leaks into your car, the entire floor pan eventually will be wet! The windshield seal can leak without any warning or reason, stuff happens!
    That was just a suggestion, not a given!

    Had this problem with my monte carlo, the cabin air filter seal isn't seated properly. Water gets in and runs into the floor pan. I found it after I had an oil change done, usually do my own and always will now !
