find where the water is coming in, usually the back hatch weatherstrippingis worn, cut or ripped, new weatherstripping should solve the problem.....

maybe theres a hole in the undercarraige and snow and slush is thrown into car by tires....

this problem started the first year we got it

75

Its a problem with a lot of THE Torrents & Equinoxs. Pontiac has an issue with the gasketing around the hatch, GM issued a bulletin (Not a recall) regarding this. I pushed this issue and got part of the repair at the dealer paid for. My problem wasnt specific to winter though, I had the problem even when it rained.
