Tesla Model Y owners have complained about water leaking into the rear trunk for a while, with dozens of cars affected. Tesla finally acknowledged the problem and issued a Service Bulletin to address it. The fix involves resealing the liftgate assembly, hopefully with a better sealant.
Water ingress can be a nasty problem, especially if you have a lot of rain in your area.
