Then you're either lucky and got one that was meticulously maintained, have lots of money, or it's yet to come

When you have replaced the water pump and radiator hoses and hose clamped them on and it still leaks coolant from where the radiator hose connects to the radiator...

When you get into it after a night of rain, there's water on the passenger floor board, the VIC is going crazy before the keys are even in, and the airbag light is lit up. I really gotta find from where the damn water is coming.

my pass floor board kept getting soaked and it wasnt the heater core of the AC (havent used the AC since....ever). turned out it was getting thru the door seal, it would work its way down to the bottom of the door jamb and somehow get up and over the metal lip. basically I pulled my carpet up and sat inside while it rained, and i watched a trickle.

ended up pulling most of the door seal off, cleaning it, putting a bead of clear silicone down and putting the door seal back down. hasnt leaked since.

just a thought

I was fairly certain it wasn't from my door seal. I have, however, sealed everything else you could possibly imagine and it still leaks. I may have been wrong in my initial diagnosis of the leak... I'm going to check the door seal the next time it rains.
