Sunroof leaks badly causing water to pour out of dome light and other places. Leaving everything water soaked and musty smelling. Can not be good for electrical wiring. Their has to be something done about this too many complaints and on many different years of Jeeps. I cannot believe they just keep making them and getting by with so many vehicles still all have the same problem. Someone could get hurt really bad if it causes a fire. Something needs done.
