    My 2019 has the issue. Just noticed the other day when I lowered the rear passenger seats, you can see dried water stains along the whole back plastic pieces. Taking my truck in AGAIN for the 5th service call in under a year. Buy a Toyota they said, they're reliable they said.

    My first 2019 was leaking from somewhere in the back. I got the truck replaced so I don’t know where it was leaking from. The service manager was familiar with the third brake light problem and said he’s never seen it on the 2019’s.

    Had it leaking on my 2016, they fixed it a year and a half ago. Now it’s leaking again I’m out of warranty but have the Toyota platinum Toyota care. They better not charge me to fix the stupid thing. I’ve never had a truck leak in that location and now this is the second time I have a leak and it’s musty smelling in my truck now. Who knows what’s going on under that headliner. Grrrr stupid cheap designed light. It’s not that freaking complicated.
