We just got our GC Laredo back from the dealer after the 4th visit for waterleaks.
1st leak in the RH rear stop light / blinker assy. It was replaced but had to wait for 3 weeks to ship the parts from USA (we live in Oz) and they replaced the rear view camera because it was foggy in the lens.
2nd leak in spare wheel well, with 1" of water sloshing around and said they fixed the leak by putting some sealant in the grommets for the tailgate wiring into the roof.
Guess what, it leaked again and the new rear view camera failed again.
3rd leak they replaced the rear view camera fixed and put some extra sealant around the window rubbers for the tail lift gate.
4th time, a small amount of water in the spare wheel well, and when it was in the workshop, the service manager asked me if i wanted to review the work they had done and showed me personally what they had done to fix it.
He had in his hand the TSB for water leak diagnosis and asked me if i had seen it. I said of course i had, as I emailed a copy to him on the 3rd visit.
So now we wait and see and "hope" i doesn't' leak again.
The GC Laredo is great car, drives heaps better than the Toyota Kluger (Highlander in the USA) I'm driving now (it's a work car, so i don't get a choice.
If only they could build the GC WK2 to be waterproof and have a decent rear view camera !
