I found that the water was making it into the trunk through a vent under the taillight. Since the taillight wasn't sealed properly against the body, water was dripping behind it. From there it would just run straight down and get in through this vent.
You can access the vent by pulling the carpeting away from the taillight area.
From there I took the vent out (need to remove the taillight to do this) and sealed it with silicone. No more leaks.

I have had the water in the trunk as well. I looked at all the different areas guys said they have had problems with, but none of them are were the water is actually leaking in. There is water flowing around them, but no actually from the vents or doors or trunk lid.
I actually found it to be the rear window. Upon further testing the window was sealed from the interior of the car, but some how water could stream right into the trunk. I bought a thing of window sealant and sealed the window from the outside under the black trim and the leaking was gone!!!

I also own a 200 Concorde. I had the car on 4 year lease. We bought the car at the end of the lease. I recently replaced the motor which let go 6 days after the extended warranty expired. Fortunately the drive train warranty covered some of the cost of replacing the motor. Chrysler would not pay for a new or rebuilt motor so I had to settle for a used motor with 75,00 miles on it. For a seven plus year old car it is pretty remarkable. I had the seat bolts replaced (under warranty) I already told you about the motor (the old one had 121,000 on it it when the serpentine belt broke. Where I was living I put an averagee of 35,000 miles per year on my car. I would buy another. I also have he headlight gasket problem described above. I love the Jaguar, Ferrari, Aston Martin look of these cars. The designer did a great job! Pastor Marc.

I also had the tail light water leak. 2" of water behind the driver seat. I did the silicon sealant around the doors, but still lots of water. Then sealed the tail light. No more 2" of water in the passenger floorboards, nor 2" in the spare tire compartment.
I wonder what is causing the intermittent electricity to my driver side window. Apparently a short somewhere.
