Getting very frustrated! My Cruze is heading back to the dealership for a third attempt at correcting "water in the trunk" issue I am experiencing. Anybody else requiring this many attempts at correcting this?

I had this problem once, when I accidentally hit the trunk button in the dark as I was locking my car before heading into the house for the night.

I came out the next morning to a wide open trunk and the contents soaked from the storm front that rolled through overnight. :(

Maybe I'll fix that problem from happening ever again when I get a new cruze next year. It might end up being a hatch. :)

Nope, the water is coming in somewhere from the left hand side. Always a water trail and side trim is wet. The first trip in was the l/h rear window applique replacement, but no joy for that fix.

Water follows gravity and the path of least resistance. It usually starts higher up than you think. Talk to them about a using a flowing seam sealer high up in the roof to pillar area.

Thank you, I'll pass it on as I'm dealing with the body shop now and no longer the service department. New manager back there that I will be meeting with on Monday.

Does your trunk button on your remote not have to be held for an extended period of time to allow the latch to release? On my 2014 Diesel it needs to be held for around 3 seconds. I would imagine they made it like this to prevent accidents like the one you mentioned.

I don't think they started that until the 14 model year. I used to find my trunk open all the time (happens with one press) until I stopped keeping my key in my pocket.

Sorry - I didn't realize that you weren't.

The body guys should have been your first stop. They should be able to get it right.

Had this happen once following a rear end collision repair. Body shop put a guy in the trunk with a drop light while they sprayed high pressure water all over the back end of the car. They found a trunk opening gutter that wasn't true and was leaking under the weather striping.
