If you have a sunroof, clogged drains are the most likely culprit. VW/Audio vehicles with sunroofs are terrible for this... Another reason we got rid of our Mk5 Jetta TDI, didn't want it to start leaking again...

Bad antenna gasket or loose antenna is another place to look.

I resealed the antenna because I have the shark fin aftermarket antenna. I checked the holes in the sunroof they look clear. I don’t know where or how they run down to the outside
With an aftermarket antenna, I would look at that first. Then search online to find the routing of the sunroof drains. If the tubes are clogged from debris they wont flow properly and the water will fill the tubes then pool around the edges of the sunroof eventually leaking into the car.

Leaking sunroof issues and fear of them again is the big reason I wanted my Cruze Diesel WITHOUT a sunroof!
