Did you have an issue with with rainwater somehow leaking into your car, and then perhaps soaking the carpet's underfelt... and ultimately rusting the floor?

When I went to look at the GF8 that I now own, I asked the previous owner to have a look under the rear cargo area cover. When he lifted the cover to expose the spare tire compartment, I couldn't believe my eyes. The car had obviously been outside in the rain for awhile... and the spare tire tub was full of water to the top! I asked the owner if he kept goldfish back there. Despite this issue, I ended up buying the car... although yes, the water infiltration problem helped to get the price down. Fortunately, the water hadn't been making its way into the passenger/carpeted area of the wagon, and thankfully there was no interior rust.
My GF8 was like that too. Not sure where the water was getting in, as it was a rusting 230k mile daily beater, but poking a little drain holes in the rubber plug at the bottom helped empty it out quicker at least
