its a byproduct of the type of seal we have.. its meant to keep normal water out (rain, floods, atlantic ocean..) not direct high pressure blasts..

I wish I had an ooze.

Mine fairly rains water down from the top edge of the window. The Pass side is worse than the driver's sdie. I really need to pull the door panels and adjust the windows to fix it.

You use an automatic car wash????

Stick with the manual ones if you actually like your car.

Yeh..there's alot of problems with automated car washes. Like on my old car, I would have to take down all of my antennas before going through b/c it would rip them off and leave marks all over my car. I just don't trust those car washes personally.

as i said in muy first post " i take it when im too lazy to wash it myself "......ya, usually i wash it by hand, but theres those days that you just don't feel like it, but its dirty enough to need one. I've had no problems in this car wash at all. Yes, i bought a winter car from my aunt, an 1991 Cavailer taht so rusted you could kick a hole in the door for the amzin price of.............$50!!!!! Mustang+Snow+Salt=BAD, not no more.

Haha..but it got redundant for me...fm antenna on trunk, car phone antenna on back glass, cb antenna in middle of trunk, and low band radio for volunteer dept on left side of trunk...got very redundant.

I don't like the thought of a high pressure spray spraying directly on my paint job. To me, it's the same as using a pressure washer to wash you car, just with more scratch marks.
