Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Water leak in my car.  Ford dealer has been
working on on and off for 4 mths...have found
two spots leaking one from the upper left seam
and one from the back of the sunroof a tube
pinched??  I have no clue what type of fungus is
in my car with water issues that have been on
going.  Ford csn t find the answer always tells
me it is fixed to find out it isn't.  Ford corporate
does not seem sympathetic to my months of
issues.  Who else has this???

I had a leak in my older Mountaineer ( just a fancy explorer) turned out too be the luggage rack, where the screws went in the seal had failed, the hard part was getting the old screws out due to the rusted condition. Might pass it along.

Thanks for the reply. am trying to see how many people have leak issues as it seems like there are a lot and Ford is putting it back on the consumer. Mine is under warranty but at first they wanted me to pay $400 for a detailing but then found the leak. My grandson has an immune issue and I can't afford to have any mold etc in my car so trying to decide my next route. I will be contacting the NHTSA on monday.
