Sounds like your dealer did good by replacing the carpet, headliner and back seat. Most would just cleaned them and called it a day.

I will have to check ours too. This sucks bigtime. This exact same issue is one of the reasons I got rid of the Power Wagon, It leaked, was molding & musty & no matter what we did or dealer did, it kept leaking. New gasket on brake light, new gaskets on roof clearance lights, replaced rear window & seal 3x, then even tried silicone on all of them, to no avail. Before we traded it, I had to put an electric space heater in it & 2 small high velocity fans inside, all on high, with a window cracked, for a week, just to dry it out. It had ice on the inside of windows.



There is no excuse for this. They have been making trucks for 122 yrs & they still cant even keep the rain out ---WTF !!!


Just checked it & all seems well. This crap is one of the reasons we ordered vinyl floors in this one but it seems to me that the foam padding that is attached to the backside of the vinyl could trap water & mold if it was to leak. IDK. So far-so good, fingers crossed.

I have a 2019 Colorado that has water leaking into the front floor board carpet. Brought it to the dealer and they put it through a car wash for several hours but no water came in. While at the dealer I lightly sprayed water under the hood on the firewall and water started leaking into the floor board. Chevy technical department stated that water should not get on the firewall during normal driving therefor this in not the source of the leakage - unless it is driven through standing water. Later after driving in a significant rain storm I checked the carpet for water. On the surface it did not appear to be wet so I checked under the carpet and the pad was soaked. The service department stated the only way they can find the leak is to come in during a rain storm. It is now getting cold so good luck with that. Wondering if any other Colorado or Canyon owner has experience this issue. This issue may be detected by seeing moisture on the underside of the rubber floor mat or lifting up the carpet and touching the carpet pad.

I got the EXACT same problem. Now have water stains above the back right headliner. First time I saw the water, it was raining and I though maybe something I set in the back seat was alittle wet. BUT, then went to the car wash today - saw soap dripping from the back right corner. Looked closer and saw the water rings from the rains last month. This is a brand new 2019 truck. Up until now, issues with the touch screen/radio and AC I was willing to put up with for a little while. This issue put me over the the TOP! See what the dealer is going to do about it. Water rings on my interior roof does not work for me.
