This is my second post and i just wanted to say thanks. i just bought a used fit a week ago. it rained hard and of course it had the leak near the rear hatch. because of this forums and it's users i found the leak in 10 minutes flat. It's at the roof panel and left / right rear panel junction. i'm repairing it right now.

have any of you found leak in the front near the top of the windshield? the caulking look just about to crack.

That's exactly where mine leaked. I just used JB Weld and a small paint brush to apply it to the crack. Then I just used the touch up paint that I had and painted it. Looks good as new. I haven't noticed a crack up front on my, but then again, I haven't looked there either. I haven't experienced a leak there yet, but since you mentioned it, I might go take a look tomorrow.

well i repaired the cracks with a product called flextra. Its outside caulking but it's stays flexible at low temps. no more water in the fit yay! it bought clear claulking so it doesn't show at all.
