Very early on I had a roof leak - only once - and it was when I was in a high pressure car wash. It leaked at the front passenger corner. It has been two years now and it has never leaked again...

Mine also leaks at the rear window. All I can tell is that it's coming in somewhere around the wiper motor. Now with all the salt on the road I can see exactly where it's coming in (leaves a white streak) but haven't been able to fix it.

They had problems with leaks in the rear hatch early on.The repair was to drill a hole in the bottom edge to let the water drain out. Newer models had the hole already drilled from the factory.

The roof panel is bonded to the body (glued in) and any place the the glue does not have a seamless bead it can leak. There was a problem at one time at the factory where this did not get done properly. You would think most of those should have been fixed by now.

My Glass shop friend tells me they come out and get re-glued to fix a leak.
