    In my extended family, we have Toyotas (2), Jaguar (2), and Lexus (1), all with sunroofs. All of them leak, especially when the drain channels are clogged.

    I've owned two vehicles in the past with sunroofs, they both had problems. I opted for the lighter, cheaper, less problematic solid roof ;)

    Long story short, welcome to the club. Were you parked at a downward sloping angle? And what is your last five of Vin? That will help figure out which leaky sunroof you have.

    Bottom line, This shouldn't happen, SC can fix.

    It's. A 2013, always parked level and inside at home and work. I'll have to find the VIN.

    can I safely assume the SC will replace the now stained part?

    You just have some bad cars then.

    I've never had leaks from any of my other cars with a sunroof. I've had the mechanism not function in one, but that was the extent of it.

    The one in my 2009 Tahoe does not leak. Nor does the one in my 2005 Tribute.

    Technically all all sunroofs leak water, it's where that water goes, that's the issue. Drain may be clogged, but still, warranty.

    Ditto. Never had a sun roof leak on any previous cars. That includes Acura, Toyota, and Volkswagen. Also no leaks in my Model S.

    I park my cars under oak trees and crepe myrtles, which produce large amounts of pollen and detritus from flowers, respectively. The fust from the trees eventually gets into the channels and the drain holes, causing a backup. This situation is not helped by the fact that we get over 5 feet of rain a year.
