Has anyone else experienced a leak in the spare tire compartment? I opened my trunk the other day and a very humid blast of air waffed out (given the constaint rain and accompaning heat in the DC area). Popped open the spare cover and found about 5" of stagnant water in well. The humidity produced from the water caused discoloration to the trunk "rug" and has caused the right rear roof covering to unseat from its glued position.

I would be interested to know if this is a common problem and interested in how the dealer will solve this.

Hmmm. I think my car has been in the rain about 3 times; maybe I oughtta get it out in one of these t-storms to see if I have the problem too. Most of my car's exposure to water has been from a hose.
