Probably blocked sunroof drains. More likely than a leaky windshield gasket. Have the dealer clear them out and soon.

One other place you could get a leak from is the roof rails. Unlikely but it is the only other penetration in the roof that I can think of. If it isn't the sunroof drains or windshield gasket, the dealer should probably check the roof rail system. Maybe a missing screw or additional hole that wasn't plugged.

If you have Onstar the antenna is located in the front of the roof. That could very likely cause a leak.

I should have read his signature to see he had OnStar also. Yet another possible leak source.

well i checked at the dealer and they could not duplicate the problem and said they can't take anytihng apart if there is no problem so they wouldnt even open it up to see where the water has been. but i would liek to say that my car will be serviced at the dealer because the ignition housing is broken. when i go to turn the car on the entire modual turs with the key freely. so they estimate 2- 3 weeks assesment then soem mroe time for parts.

Got a digital camera? Next time it rains, use movie mode to collect the evidence.
