Default door seals and hatch back adjustment

98 imp ob : i seem to have moisture getting through the seals.it doesnt leak in but when washing w/ pressure it gets in a little.this may also play a role in wind noise and rear hatchback rattling?is there an adjustment to get the hatchback tighter so less rattling and is the door and window seals need replacing a common thing. the seals seem good,no dry rot or ageing and some windows dont go up all the way with the doors closed seems very tight.maybe battery or seals? i cant figure it out,any help would be greatly appreciated, orion

I too get moisture around the edges of the windows from washing my car. I'm pretty sure this is common, but nothing to worry about. As for the hatch, I don't have a solution.

It's a problem with all the subies since they don't have an upper door frame around the window. I'm ready to replace my seals all the way around cause it's getting too loud on the freeway.
