Water in rear door jambs

Anyone else notice this? Any time I was the car or it rains, water pools up pretty good at the bottom of the rear door jambs, even if I open them a couple days later. Starting to worry that they don't drain properly?

Try searching. This has been covered more than twice here. Here's one of them.

I had the same issue with my Focus. Washing it one day, I noticed the rubber seal at the top of the door, against the lower part of the window, was folded in and down. This was allowing water to enter inside the door. I pulled it up and no more water on my jamb.

I saw the thread about this before I got my car. First thing I did was check for that when I washed my car for the first time.

It's dry. However! On the day I got my car I found the weatherstripping on all my doors except for the driver's door was rolled out of place. There's a holder thingy that pokes into a hole but it seemed to have popped out so the weatherstripping rubber wasn't sealing properly.
Check that and push it in yourself to make sure!
