Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
My trunk was full of water in the area where the spare tire is kept. The dealer said it was due to the recessed area around the license plate not being sealed properly. I consider this to be a design flaw on the part of GM. I had to pay $248.00 to have this sealed by the dealer. If they can seal around doors and windows why can't they properly seal areas in the trunk? (Many people do not check the spare tire compartment unless they have a flat.)
I had this issue on my 2008 Torrent. It has something to do with the gasketing seal around the back hatch. GM issued a Bulletin to their dealers on how to fix it which means it is an ongoing problem with the Equinox/Torrent platform. I pushed the issue with GM and my dealer saying that although it wasnt a warranty issue it WAS a design flaw and they paid 2/3 of the cost to repair it :)

This really is a design flaw on the 2001 aurora, mine does the same thing, you'll notice that after the rain or when you wash it and then open the trunk, water pours in. I could never stop it from leaking in but there is a way to keep your trunk water free. there are 3 drain plugs in the bottom of your trunk under the spare tire. They're plastic, just pop one out or fold it back a little.

U need to carefully check the seams of the sheetmetal for any sign of water or dirt from the road, there is no common leak on these cars, in fact they seldom leak anywhere, the water is most likely splash up from the road, unless u left something out like it was sitting when this water accumulated. Let me know that info.
