So I figured the carpet doesn't get soaking wet, but maybe moist on top like to the touch.. But also smells like wet carpet.. So some how that moister is staying inside the car.. So I put a sprinkler on top on the car ran it slow and low like a rain shower.. For 30 mins. The Carpet is bone dry... Drove around came back and parked it.. Put the top down 3/4 way to see the management bag it seems water doesn't fully drain out and leaves some puddled at the bottom.. Some sort of brown algae has formed so I know it's getting stuck there which is causing the moister inside the car??? What y'all think?? That's what I'm saying in the morning to dealer

Mention to the service manager that your kids have asthma and your worried about the mold....... No BS I went to the emergency rm twice in 2010 from mold poison. It's no joke. You need to get their attention.
Good luck.........

Hello javi05,

It appears you have been experiencing the same issue with your convertible top and I want to apologize for the frustrations your having. I would like to get involved and investigate this issue further for you. Could you please private message me your full name, number, address with zip, VIN and accurate vehicle mileage? Also send your involved dealers information as well. I will look into this for you and update you.

I love my 2012 Convertible that I bought 4/11/12 & today was the last day for this dealership. They closed the doors after 79 years here as I recall reading somewhere. At 68 this is probably my last car in this life since I have the 80 Caballero that I show. Some don't know, its just like the El Camino except made by GMC. I never knew this either until I saw the BIG GMC sign on the car. Anyway no problems with rain, etc so far. Michael in Virginia

Sounds like the imfamous Water (Mis)mangagment bag problem. This is a KNOWN problem and the WMB was redesigned because of leakage and failures.
