Jeep Leaking Problem Still Leaving Drivers All Wet

June 06, 2012

We initially reported the problem in 2008 and we received over 100 comments from Jeep owners suffering with water leak problems.  Jeep Wrangler, Patriot, and Commander drivers seem to be hit the hardest.  And we don’t blame them for being upset. Water leaks can lead to mold and mildew, which can cause real harm for folks with asthma and/or allergies. We have seen water leak from pillars, dome lights, windshields, even through heating vents. The damage that can be done to the interior and the electrical system is extensive and should not be taken lightly.

If your Jeep is leaking and you are still under warranty, it is essential that you get to a Jeep-authorized dealership as soon as possible to have the leaking addressed.  Furthermore, if you smell an unusual scent or see that your rugs are damp, you must also bring this to the service adviser’s attention.  We are seeing numerous claims where they are replacing carpeting due to the mold that is growing as a result of the water leak.

Also, please hold on to all of your repair invoices.  If you are in three or more times with issues associated to your Jeep leaking water, you may be entitled to recourse under State Lemon Law or Federal Warranty Law.  Depending on the mileage when the Jeep leaking was first reported, you could be looking a new vehicle, a complete repurchase, or at the very least significant monetary compensation to reflect the diminished value of the Jeep as a result of the water leak problem.  And, as you know, both State and Federal laws provide fee-shifting provisions offering completely free legal help to consumers.  There is no cost and no risk to filing a claim if you qualify.

We have successfully resolved more than 700 Jeep water leak claims since 2008 and we will be glad to assist you as well.  If you are having a Jeep leaking problem, call us at 1 800 LEMON LAW or fill out our Get Rid of Your Lemon form.  if we cannot help you, we will try to direct you to someone who can.

    If I am out-of-state, can I receive your help if I move, or does it have to be addressed in the state of vehicle purchase??

        I am second owner of a 2011 70’th Anniversary Special Jeep Wrangler JKU. I bought it in March 2015 with 31,000 miles. It has both the 12 month warranty and the extended 7 year 100,000 mile warranty. I have had it in to a Jeep Dealer 4 times now for leaks in the A pillar area on both sides. Each time I got it back with ‘water tested, no leaks found’. On the second visit they replaced most of the weather stripping. They have now replaced all the weather seals around both front doors and the freedom panels and plugged a hole at the base of the windshield. The passenger side seems to have been fixed, but the drivers side still leaks like a sieve. The technician now states the freedom panel may need replacing on the drivers side.

          I bought my 2013 hyndai in 2013! I have had it for over 2 years.Iwas getting my car serviced. Oil change etc. I came home and forgotten to roll up the window. Car would not start. Tried it for over 10 minutes—to no avail. So I gave up and tried the next morning.. It started right away. I did another errand and it would not start. I’M planning a trip next week——I don’t if I p can count it
          So may have to cancel the whole trip. I have had this happen more than once or twice. The dealership in Sacramento seems to feel that I am having illusions. Maybe it’s time to contact an attorney. Best of Luck to you all. I will never buy a Hyndai again.
