New to the forum, but didn't see this posted anywhere else. I bought a '12 Unlimited Sport S 2 months ago, and I just started noticing water pooling in the floorboards on the front passenger side. I called the dealership and they said that they were aware of the issue, and it has to do with the door seal. They said there was a recall, but I couldn't find anything online about it. They said I could bring it in and it would be about 45 mins to replace the seal and water test. Just a heads up in case anyone else runs into this.
I've got the same issue with my Jeep. It's only about 8 months old and noticed the leak on the passenger side a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, I don't have a garage to park it in, so every time it rains, the passenger side floorboard gets soaked.
I brought it in twice already, and they've replaced the door seal, but it hasn't worked. The dealership tried telling me that the water from the second test was from when they opened the door, but I knew that was BS; they just didn't want to do more warranty work on it. The service manager mentioned an additional door seal "add on" that will hopefully fix the problem. However, they told me it takes a few weeks for the part to come in; they're delivering it on the back of a mule I guess.
Anyways, just wanted to let you know that you're not alone and it's been a common issue for the newer JK owners.
Good luck and make sure you put your foot down if the dealership pushes back.

Had the same problem with my 2011. Just bought it in August and have had it in the rain, no problems. However, left it outside my garage for two days and it was heavy rain. This morning I noticed water in my floor mat. Thought I didn't shut the door properly. Thanks for posting this thread!
I have a 2012 wrangler sport that is 4 months old,a few weeks after I purchased it I noticed the front drivers side carpet get wet.I wrote it off as water from my feet so I purchased weather tech floor mats.After rain or washing,the floor and carpet was still wet.I also noticed freedom panels filling with water and water dripping on dash board.Returned to the dealer who sprayed tar on power booster, That did nothing other then making a mess.Called jeeps hotline,had it to Huntington jeep in N.Y.twice and it still leaks.Last trip the service manager[Mike] said it was all fixed and when we went out to the parking lot and opened the door it was leaking from the roof and the floor was soaked.I wet back inside an informed Mike the service manager and he wouldn't go out and look .His response was all Jeeps leak and walked away.A real despicable person and shocked that he would treat a customer that way.I had hoped the the dealer could fix the problem but they don't give a shit.I guess I have to use the lemon law but if anyone has any idea's let me know.LOOKING FOR A POST,Thanks
Hello all, I am a new Jeep owner. I just bought a 2007 wrangle 4dr. We just had our first major rain here in Orlando since I got it. I noticed water dripping in on the front driver and passenger side doors. I looked at the seals, and the water is coming in the point where the door, windshield, and soft top meet. I called the dealership and I am waiting for their response. I am really hoping I'm not gonna have to deal with it raining in my jeep everytime it rains outside. I am ok when I have the top down and it rains on me...that is jeep life. But when I want to stay dry..i prefer a roof and doors to help me with that. Any suggestions on what to do?
Most passenger side leaks are related to the passenger side wheel well if the water is on your floor in significant amounts. Goodluck, leaks suck. Sooner or later the after market will have a solution for us.
I would get rolls of the sticky foam the dealers use and do every single crevice etc until gone. Or pull carpets out amd rhino line the tub
