water leaks from DOOR SEALS FILLING with water, leaks on ground when opening

Asked by May 26, 2017 at 12:14 PM about the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox LT

Question type: General

Holes on top of door seals allow rain to enter inside seal when door is closed,
upon opening, water pours out bottom holes.  Thankfully water does not enter
car but should not enter seal either.  Why have HOLES ON TOP?  If they're
there to allow seal to collapse on closing, there are plenty of side holes.  
Should not have holes on top!

My 2017 LS Equinox does the same thing...a good POUR. I called salesman; never heard of it. Called Svc Advisor; said bring it in to check it out. Advisor didn't mention gaskets, but did say there's a water tray in bottom where it should drain as you drive. I am envisioning rot in the gasket and/or mildew, causing odor in the vehicle. Call me paranoid, but had I known before - NO Equinox would be in my garage.

THANKS Guru9L7MV, I was starting to question my sanity!! I've asked folks and inspected several Equinoxes, explaining what mine does and they look at me like I just graduated from the LOONEY-BIN! They never have had the situation. I believe them, there's no missing it if you got the problem, especially after a good rain!! I've checked their gaskets and they LOOK identical to mine. I felt vindicated by your post, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Now I at least have some "proof" when I take it in. I'm also assuming all four of your doors do leak? All mine do, I can even tell you which direction the rains came by which doors drain the MOST. It's a shame, brand new vehicle. I like most of it except for the back seat fold-down which leaves the seat back at a 30 degree angle, HATE THAT! Please keep me updated (dealer visit?) on your situation and if you hear any more from ANYONE! duder99....
