This car is a nightmare when it rains. I traveled one and a half hours in a storm. The water on the back drivers side floor where I had clothes in a small pile..they were literally floating from so much water that was pouring in. At any time that I had to stop at a light the water would then come to the front in a huge wave of water. What the heck is that?

Took car in to 3 different dealers to have them fix water leaks & air whistling and none could fix it. They said there was a flaw in the design of the top. They tried spraying foam on edge, adding an elastic strap (#8894 part), tried adjusting top - none of these exercises worked. Now yet another dealer in joplin too tells us there's nothing that can be done as it's a flaw in the design/construction. There is also a whistling in the A/C system or vents when A/C is on and driving 40+ miles an hour. Several times while driving in "D" the transmission doesn't shift out of low gear.

Vehicle has been designed too low to the ground. When parking in parking lots where there is the front parking stoppers, the spoiler gets past the stopper and gets hookes. When backing up the spoiler gets stuck and more often than not will tear.
