Do you have a sun roof? If so it could be clogged drains in the sunroof frame . Look for holes in the front corners. Be sure they are clear of debris.

I received a phone call yesterday from Kia Corp. as I contacted them concerning this very problem. The man on the phone, who admitted he new nothing about cars, told me that there were no official complaints about this problem. He told me to take my car back to the dealer, I've already done that and what a rip off, and pay $120 plus labor for them to diagnose the problem. Nope


Where are these drains supposed to drain?

I took my car to a body shop . He worked on the sunroof. Paid $150.00 up and moved my car and it leaked again. Still leaking from the dome area.

My car actually ended up being that the seal on the front window was broken, and the water was traveling inside the car and pooling on the floor of the passenger seat.

I have the exact same problem with our 2010 Soul. I have traced the leak over and over again, always starting at the door seals and even lifting the vehicle to see if some sort of seal is missing under it. I just discovered that there is a plastic piece on the roof that has a pretty good gap in it (unlike the drivers side). I am going to see if there is some sort of rtv sealant that I can possibly work into this area and see if I can fix the problem. Check just under the plastic between the front door and back door. Is it wet like mine just under there? I think it's feeding right through the exterior and interior taking the least path of resistance.


I buy a Kia Soul yesterday and I just find out the same problem. When I have the AC on the water that normally go out on the floor or road is not going there. I think that can be the AC water inside the car because is clear water and my foot got few drops when we was looking on yet his problem. I'm not sure if I need to call the dealer or take it to a friends shop but is very wet and has not rain since I got my car.
