Can you take a pic? There should be multiple seals, one series of which is for rain, others are for air/wind.

Same exact issue here. 8 passenger limited, 10/2018 build. Front door seals are somewhat floppy and when rear doors are open and you close front doors the seal hits the edge of rear door making an annoying snapping sound. Anyone have dealer successfully address this?

I just noticed the same issue on my Limited yesterday morning, after heavy rain. The rain stopped at least several hrs bc the pavement is dry. When I opened the driver door, the water immediately shed off the vertical portion, I assumed, of the door sill.
