Check nearside rear carpet. Mine had a veritable lake there. Also check behind rear wheel arches. The seal near the tailgate hinges can leak.

Yup, more likely to be incorrect settings on the heater/air con than a water leak - I'd check that before feeling carpets!

An air-conditioning system includes a dehumidifier.

Ever noticed a little puddle under your car when the air-con's been on but the cars not moving, that's the dehumidifier doing its thing taking water out of the air and dumping it.

So to reduce the moisture in the cabin air, run the heater and the air-con at the same time whilst recirculating the air. This draws the cars cabin air through the dehumidifier before then passing back through the heater and into the cabin once more. Each pass will further reduce the humidity (and hence people get sore throats from driving with air-con on a lot caused by the dry air drying the throat)

But once you turn off the air-con return the setting to fresh air as peoples breath adds moisture back into the air, and will slowly increases the airs humidity if it keeps being circulated.
