Both my windows are leaking water very badly, also leaking at the seal where the roof breaks to fold over the window. It is making my car very wet inside during a rain or a wash. Anyone else have this problem ?

Dang!

Sorry to hear that, mine is tight as a drum. Are you sure the windows are going all of the way up when you shut then doors? In your owners manual it tells how to "re-train" the windows. I believe you lower the windows and hold the button for five seconds after it bottoms out and then raise the window until it stops and again hold it five seconds longer and it will be "trained".

Anyone else?

Mine does not leak at the windows but it does leak at the seals, I have checked into it but nothing can be done, Some would say only friends of a friend of a friend knows someone that has a top that leaks so I thought I was the only one with a leaking top

Dry

No leaks in my 2005. Had it since October, it is my daily driver. And with the amount of rain we got this winter in Southern California that's saying something!

I just have an occasional drip right at the seal break top center of each window. Not hardly enough to worry about.

Windows Leaking

Could a window ajustment help this problem, Maybe a drive to Houston ?

Silicon lube

New rubber seals can be very unforgiving when dry. On other cars I have owned and restored I had to lube the rubber seals.
On a old 72 Monte Carlo with new seals it would stop the power window half way up with the drag of the rubber to glass contact.
After silicon lube the window and rubber seal was smooth and sealed perfect with no leaks till this day.

Hope this helps.

Window leaks

Mine was leaking from the first time it got rained on. Took mine to the dealer and had them replace the roof seals under warranty. It took two separate vistits because they didn't get them placed right the first time. Haven't had any leaks in the roof window area since.
Don't let the dealer tell you there's nothing they can do about it, because they can. I was a wind/waterleak specialist for the dealers in this area for many years.When no one else could find the wind noise or waterleak they would bring it to me, and we would narrow it down and finally pin point the problem, then devise a propper fix for the situation (not a band aid fix, but a true fix).
Good luck with your situation.
