Water and Suds Getting Into The Top of the Back Hatch After Washing

Anyone have a problem with water and suds getting in the area where the top of the hatch in back connects
to the car roof inside?
After I wash the car or leave a car wash and open up the back hatch I noticed suds still there on the inside
area where it connects to the car. Is this a defect?

If its not inside the car its normal . There is a seal around the hatch to keep water out of the inside. Generally when washing a car after its rinsed off i use a microfiber towel and open all doors hatches etc and dry off the area.

Like Adamturbo says, anything above the rubber seal will get wet, that's totally normal.

Yeah, wiping the water around the doors are a pain...

So long as it's not actually getting past the seal, it's fine. Best to just let it dry a bit after washing before you open the hatch if it's a concern. I'm partial to borrowing my neighbor's leaf blower once in a while.

When my friends are over, we use the leaf blower to get most of it out, then go back and detail the cracks with the air compressor. We were able to dry the entire car with just 1 microfiber towel that way!

Great minds think alike! I sometimes worry if i'm scratching cars with towels when I wash or dry using them and a leaf blower takes some of that worry away. Perhaps we should have a thread on how people wash their C-HR.

Thankfully I mostly park indoors or have the option of doing that when I want because living in the city we have a lot of options, almost too much if you ask me. Biggest issue might be when it rains hard and i'm on the road a lot.
