Q: Water leaking in trunk fills a pool of water inside.

Trunk leaking water fills a pool of water inside.

My car has 15400 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. There are few things that could cause a water leak in the trunk on your particular vehicle. Which are, faults such as the trunk not fully closing due to a faulty trunk latch or the more common problem of a worn weather strip in your trunk. The weather strip is the long piece of rubber that wraps around the lining of your trunk. One final thing that it could be leaking from are the tail light seals. I suggest that the technician check the tail lights by removing them and inspecting the seals behind them. If requested, the technicians we provide here at YourMechanic will be able to identify which one component is causing your leak. We will also send you a quote for your leak diagnosis so you can have an estimate for your records .
