Rust - Garage Humidity and Moisture

I recently moved and noticed that water does not dry in the new garage.

I drove in the rain 3 days ago and there were still droplets on the roof of the Jeep this mornning. There is no visible ventilation in this 10 car garage, other than a relatively small (24x24) roof vent in a corner. Looking around, the floor under the my Jeep and neighbors cars, is still wet as well, 3 days later. I've been keeping an eye on this for a few months now but no improvement even as the weather warmed up a bit.

I am wondering how much damage this will cause? What is weird, no ones rotors show any signs of rusting like they do on cars that sit outside in the rain... I am confused as to why not.

The Jeep in question is my wife's pristine 2000 XJ, with all original paint and not a spec of rust. So, i don't want to let something like this ruin it after it's been pampered for 18 years.

I have that problem here in Michigan also. A fan does wonders on helping to dry up moisture, and better ventilation. I finally fixed my problem for good by installing forced air gas heat. I did that because I work out of my garage and the side benefit was no more moisture problem.
