Just bought this vehicle had it for 2 days on the third drove it to work at 5:00 a.m and parked it. It then rained for most of the day when I got in it that evening it had standing water in the front passenger floorboard. This is a brand new jeep with a hardtop anyone else had this experience. For the price tag I sure wouldn't think that they would leak that bad.

Never had a leak with my hardtop. Definitely bring it back to the dealer and have them look at it.

Most likely the top is not seated correctly. Pull the drain plugs under the carpet, and dry it out before it gets funky, and let the dealer look at it...

Have my 10 Rubi for a little over a year now and not one drop of water when you're buttoned up. However, when you open the doors and there is water on the roof that's a different story. Take it in.

Yeah its been at the shop for three days now sure would like to know the cause. I had a 2010 x that I traded with a hardtop never leaked.

Finally got the jeep back after three days to no avail. The dealership told me that they could not find a water leak after extensive testing with a water hose but that they would be fixing the top seal due to a recall. For my own benefit I checked the carpet to make sure it was dry and it was, decided to take it to car was to see for myself. After a total of five minutes of washing passenger floorboard and mat were once again soaking wet, took it straight back to dealership to show them and they informed me to dry out carpet and bring it back to them because they would need it for up to three days to pinpoint the leak. This is something I did in five minutes and they need three days? What gives here I have owned the thing for a total of four days this just doesn't seam right. Anyone else have an experience like this?

2010 2dr with dual top. Hard top no issues as you describe but minor seepage through passenger side retaining screw/fastener in sound bar. What recall are you describing? Find nothing. Thanks

Something about the passenger side freedom top seal

2010 had to sit on the lot in weather for a while. If it did not smell funky when you got it must not have leaked. are you parking on an incline? Parking under a flow of water off a roof? Mine has leaks but only at a carwash. Or if the doors are not shut completely.

It didn't smell weird but for the most part all we have had as far as moisture had been snow up until last week. I had thought about the doors not being fully closed so before I took it to the carwash I had made a point to close and secure all doors prior to washing. I'm not certain but I feel like it has to be coming from beneath the door or some where up by the windshield.

My 2010 Rubi 2 door with 1000 miles leaks from somewhere on to passenger floor. Haven't investigated yet. Leaked one rainy night but hasn't leaked in a rain storm since (that I know of)
