Default 2nd Bonneville - water in the car AGAIN

Has anyone else had a problem with water in the rear driver floor area? This is the SECOND bonnie I've had and this is the second time I have had water in the same place. GM is telling me that it'* just coincidence - but I'm trying to find documentation that proves otherwise. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What year Bonneville? The fault usually lies with the butyl seals failing on the water deflectors on the 2000+ cars. Remove the interior door panel(skin), shut the door, pour a bucket of water outside on the glass, then look to see where the water is getting by the butyl seal. Sound like a deal?

I just got my '02 SE back from the dealership for water on driver'* side rear seat floor. They found the leak to be the deflector'* inside both front and rear driver'* side door just as mentioned earlier. $192.50 to have them resealed.

May I add if this is not the fix you need . Its a good thing that you wnet to a dealer
because they will have to reembursed (sp)the last fix by Law.
