2001 sable/taurus trunk leak

Hi - Anybody know of problems with the 2001 sable/taurus water leaks that fill up the trunk with water. I'm guessing that this is a common problem.

This car is like new and I don't see any broken seals or poorly fitting joints. During the rains though, the spare tire area in the trunk fills with water. I am contemplating getting in the trunk and having water splashed on it, but I'm not really looking forward to that!

Start low with the hose and slowly work your way up to the roof.Don't use a spray nozzle on the hose remove it and just trickle the water on.A nozzle can force a leak that doesn't really exist.If the water is dirty it's coming up from the road if clear it's from the rain hitting the car.

It could also come in because of a bad seal around the rear window..after a rain, see if its wet inside the car by the window sill..
