Water gets into trunk. I've checked the seal, it looks good. Causes the rear window to fog up constantly and now I have mold on the trunk carpet.

This is just 1 of the issues this car has, there are too many and i'm really regretting spending my hard earned money on it!!!!!!!! Handling sucks, don't feel safe, trunk leaked waterfall amounts of rain inside my trunk and all over everything inside my trunk, and all over me when i opened my trunk, recalls, it's loud, and i don't like that you can't use inside air when using the vent it only takes outside air and then your filing up your lungs with the exhaust of all the cars around you in heavy traffic time's. Yuck Yuck Yuck can't wait till i can get a better car!!!!!!
