i would check the top pillar of the windshield . run a garden hose on it and get inside and pull the carpet back . a common failure is to run down the A pillar onto the drivers floorboard hope this helps if so please accept and thank you for using james

Is the top pillar the black plastic cowl that is under the windshield wipers? If so that is where I sealed the windshield is between it and the windshield. And it still leaks. I know that the 2001 models have a problem with leaks as well but in that model they leak water in the back seat passenger side which takes a $4.53 part to fix we have one of them as well. We just can't seem to find this leak.

the top of the A pillar is on the driver side where the pillar meet the roof james
