hate to make thsi thread wise fwom it's gwave but with superstorm Sandy blowing along the Eastern US making it rain(or worse) for days at a time in some areas(5 straight here in NE Ohio) I noticed a large puddle in the rear footwell on the driver's side. mopped it up with a towel and just hours later, it was back. Repeated the process and upon opening the rear hatch and looking down the spare tire well was FULL of water. Clearly it was spilling over into the rear footwell, seats were getting wet as well.
I hope everyone checks their spare tires and rear carpet post haste if you're affected at all by Sandy.
Unfortunately I'm in a bind and the dealer can't get the car in until next Monday(!)
Good luck.
