2014 Nissan Versa sedan water leak

My 2014 Nissan Versa has 165xx miles and it has a water leak from the roof and it's getting my headliner wet. Does anyone else have this problem?

Can't tell from the picture, but you might want to check the rubber door seal to make sure it hasn't failed. If the top portion of the door seal is allowing water to enter, it could be "wicking" into the headliner.

Hi,

Have you found the exact cause of the leak? I found almost the same spot being wet the other day, but my passenger seat was wet too, need to find where exactly it was coming from.

Hello all,

Assumptions:
There is no moon/sun roof installed and nothing turned up with a quick visual inspection of the door gasket or windshield seal.

The issue is most likely with the door or the front windshield. I'm betting door.
Can you tell me if this occur while the car was sitting? or was it driven that day?

Next super rainy day (or garden-hose) use plastic to tape up top of the door/window, and see if the problem occurs again.
Then do the same with the top edge of the windshield. Your trying to eliminate either the door or the windshield from the equation.

So this just happened to me today on my 2012 Versa S (passenger door only). Never had it happen before, and I live in Florida with downpours, and have gone through a couple hurricanes. It stormed very badly today, and when I went to go to the store after the storm I noticed it in the exact same spot as both pictures. I've had the car since new, and this is the first time it happened. I did have the doors open the other day for a while as I cleaned out the car, and this morning I had the windows down while driving. I thought maybe I left the window down just the slightest, or maybe even the door was ajar. The carpet and seat are dry. It's only on the headliner that is wet. Hmmm.

Ugh.. Having been through this with my 2017 Ram 1500 pickup, I wince at the thought..

Like said, if you can pop the trim off and carefully pry the headliner away (from a dry, substantial part of it), carefully run a garden hose or water source around the top edge of the windshield. If that's all good, maybe it's the door seal?

On my truck it was a combination of the 3rd brake light seal and a crappy aftermarket rear window install that had to come out and be re-sealed. 2 dealer trips under warranty were a no-go. Finally had to pay a glass guy I like to fix it, on a 1.5yr/old truck with ~20K miles on it.
