I have a new 13 Wrangler. I noticed the carpet on the passenger side alittle wet. I have the rubber mats on top and they weren't really wet..only the rub under. It was a very heavy driving rain..has anyone else noticed this? The Jeep has only 350 miles on it..hoping it was just a freak thing that won't happen again!!!. I did notice that the window wasen't rolled up completely tight..maybe just enough to let the rain blow in??? Kinda bummed.....I did have a slight water problem with my 05 TJ t times!!!

Jeeps always leak. Mine is 2012 and leaks. I went to the local stealer twice and they had no clue of how to fix the problem. What I have done is remove the hard top, clean, re-seal the rubber with silicone, add some rubbers/cushions in strategic places and use a towel inside when it rains too much. Also, always park your car with the front up in relation to the rear. It helps a lot.

Jeeps aren't supposed to leak, not in 2013. *Knock in wood,*, but after nine trips to two dealers, mine seems to be fixed. Get Chrysler involved if you have to, or give it back under lemon law if that's possible in your state. My ordeal has been a total clownfest, it was like getting a tribe of Ubangi warriors to build a cyclotron.
You know I'm all about making jeep fix their ****ty quality control issues. Important things like cylinder heads, water pumps etc.
But it's a "convertible" with a 3 piece top. A small leak is the one thing I think IS acceptable.
The local dealers have talked to me about it. Trying all kinds of fixes. Getting jeep engineers involved. It rains in Portland ALL the time and all the jeeps on the lot leak. They finally got an "engineer" to come and stay for a week and he "readjusted" all of the tops. Oregon had a very rare dry week. The engineer left. It rained the next week. They all had water again. Lol
If there is water trapped inside the top itself that's one thing. Otherwise, some foam/rubber tape is about all you can do in my opinion.
The next day I bought mine, it was raining lightly and notice a few drops of water in the back, not enough to bother me. Then in the last 3 months we got rain like we never did, with strong storms, and never saw a drop of water again.... This with my soft top on, I haven't put the hard one yet.
My leak is coming from the bottom of the passenger door. In addition, it was coming down the firewall on both sides and all the wiring harnesses had to be removed. I only wish my problem was the top, even though I do have a hard top. Mine was leaking puddles in both floor pans, that is not acceptable. Essentially, the Firewall had to be torn out, both doors realigned, both doors had to have new seals, and fillers within the seals. Nine trips to two dealers in addition to twice having a blown out front axle seal. Jeep only has 14,000 miles.
We had a strong rain and I sat in the Jeep. On the passenger side I spotted a small water leak coming from the bottom of the door! I checked the seal and it seemed fine..also compared it to the drivers side and it appeared to be identical. I have an appt. with the dealer and hopefully it's just needs a replacement door seal or maybe a door adjustment!
