I'm bad, Holes in my what?:eek: Now I have to look. Haven't noticed any water sloshing around in the back and I don't know if there are holes in the hatch either.

I took mine (1/09) into the dealer while still under warranty (water was sloshing in the hatch) and they just drilled holes.
What was not good is all the RUSTY water that leaked out of the hole and left marks on the body. Came off but I'm curious.
Not sure it the water going thru the hatch will cause rust damage eventually.

Just drilled the holes, a surprising amount of clear water shot out from the hole on the driver's side, none on the other side. Thanks JWight for starting the thread and helping me to avoid future issues!
