2011 Sport V6.

I've searched the forum a bit and haven't found this issue described

After it rains there is water held between the inner and outer door seal. Happens on both rear doors. No water gets in the car but when the rear doors are opened after a rain water dumps on the ground. The seals look clean. The seals are pliable and don't have any breaks in them.

Any suggestions for what to look at as the possible cause?

The dealer couldn't duplicate the issue.

Of course the dealer wont be able to duplicate the issue :p:p:p

I had the same issue on one of the doors and just like you, I didn't have any water intrusion. It was so annoying that after each time it rains or car wash I had to open the door to let the water dump! I was worried about rusting more than anything.

I was able to solve it by sticking a piece of flat weatherstrip (approx. 10-12 in. long) just below the rear glass line to 'push' the T'reg's weatherstrip creating a tighter seal. And it worked for me and it's been 3 years since.

I occasionally monitor it just to be sure and it's been good.

I'm attaching a pic.
