Thanks for the video, inxsary. Hopefully this will help out some of the other people who are having this same issue. Has your dealer had any luck diagnosing/repairing the leak?

It'll probably cause some rusting once salty highway water covers my car and eventually drains down in there - I got a car wash last Friday... I should probably open that door to see if there's still water in there.

And/or has anyone found the issue and a fix? I have the problem (noticed for a while) and only now is it really really bugging me since it rained last night, then froze over night. I couldn't open my driver side rear door! And ice was on the plastic lining as well as covering the bottom of the door itself.

Like a few have mentioned, rain itself doesn't really bother me since I open the doors enough, its the salt and ice that concern me.

And like the video above, the water is resting above the plastic trim on the sill. I'm not taking the car back to the shop anytime soon, but I would like to know if anyone figures out a fix for this.
Hey folks,

I would advise that you all make appointments at your respective dealerships to get this checked out, especially now that weather is getting colder. I'm happy to get your cases escalated as well; just send me a PM with your details (VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name) and I'll get to work.
