Ive had my car since 07, and it only leaked when I first bought it because the hvac vent was plugged. Long story short, my car sat outside for the first time in a few years for the last 2 months, and the floor was SOAKED. It was mostly the drivers side that was completely saturated, the passenger side had a little moisture. Where could it be leaking from? Any common issues?
I am thinking maybe the windshield. Let me be clear, it is NOT a heater core. It isn't coolant, and its mostly on the other side. It was rain water. Are there any other common leak points on these cars I don't know of?

Thanks!

I think you may be right thinking it's the windshield.

The sealer at the top of the heaterbox to the firewall will dry out and crack. At least that's what I found on mine. Also, if the drain is plugged with debris, it will dam up into the car.

Since you are saying mostly on the driver's side I would start with the windshield first.

Pull the stainless at the windshield base & start looking, next would be the under the A piller & top trim. I've delt with fixing leaks all around the windshild from leaves & dirt built up under them. The other would be the urethane failed or is hiding rust under it.
