Often times what happens is that water seeps down past the door glass; and
instead of draining out the drain at the base of the door like it's 'sposed
to, it gets past the vapor barrier and finds an alternate route inside the
car to the rear floor area. The quick check is to pull off the door panels
and check the integrity of the seals. If they're bubbled, rippled, leaking,
etc; replace 'em for 16$ish per door.

hope this helps,
