Can't tell by looking at your profile.............

Yeah, I don't usually fill them out very much.  I'm in the same area.

I wonder if anyone has answered with no leak without actually looking back there for any signs. When I was dealing with the brake issue I ran across the rear window leak thread. I said to myself, I'm glad mine isn't leaking. But then I went and looked around and sure enough mine was also leaking and I didn't really even know it.

You don't look, you feel. Seat cushions up and press a piece of paper toweling against the top surface of the rug...........comes up bone dry = no leak.

Fortunately or unfortunately for me when I checked it was raining pretty hard and it was on the top of my rear seat by the headrest. no feeling necessary. I did feel around after that and luckily the floor and seat cushions were dry.

Glad to see everyone voting on this one.  I do wish that if someone voted "no leak" and later experienced one they could change their answer.

So I wonder if the reduced occurrence of 10% on the 2020's is due to the problem being fixed somewhere along the line, or just due to the fact that they haven't been owned long enough.

I check mine every time I wash the truck or drive in the rain. My 19 with slider is leak free so far.

 

I've also purposely flooded the spoiler/rear window with water when rinsing the truck to try and get it to leak. :thumbs:

Good question, wondered that myself.

 

Currently the 2019's are around 70% of those polled, 2020's are 15.4% of those polled.

I'm interested in more details from the ~10% of people with a fixed rear window who have a leak.

I didn’t have the option on the first poll question to answer “Yes my truck had the rear cab window leak- resolved by the dealer however I am not satisfied with the results” 
 

Such as the dealership using seam sealer to cover the 2 spots they are aware of fracturing/ cracking and making small holes allowing water to enter the cab. Even after a discussion was had that I did not want this to happen.

I'm using the Tapatalk app to view this forum and there is no poll showing. Is this something you have to go to the website for or am I missing something?

I logged on to the website. I feel like I was not properly counted. Since my 19 and 20 both leaked and I could only submit one vote!!

I have seen several polls on the Facebook group as well that seemed to be in the 30% range but really hard to tell how genuine some of the votes were by people with no leak sick of hearing people with leaks complaining about their leak

Took my 2020 LT TB through the car wash last night for the first time with some amount of worry about what would happen, and luckily no leak yet.
