I googled deeper than that. Most of those are either not Elements, or the problem is caused by the AC. I did not run the AC, and the problem happens when the vehicle is parked, engine turned off. Didn't goggle up anything like that. I suspect the windshield seal may be the culprit, but that's purely a guess.

I have seen windshields leak, the urethane lets go and water gets in. If you took it to a glass shop, they could water test it and also inspect the windshield to make sure it's 100% sealed.

If it's the windshield, you may need a new one, as trying to get the old one out in one piece sometime breaks them. I have seen undamaged windshields break when we had to change roofs.

Do you think it's a better idea to take it to a glass shop for testing, of to the Honda dealer?

Glass shop. If it's not the windshield, then the dealer. If it's the windshield and you take it to the dealer, they will just call a glass company. They don't have the tools to remove it if it's leaking.

If it is the w/s you have to remove it, no patch jobs.

I'll definitely let you know. But for now it's in the garage, until we come back from Europe, end of July. So, I'll let you know in August. Thanks again!

Equipped with a sunroof?

Yes, but that is definitely not the problem, given where the water collects. I had the vehicle parked on a slope, front up. If the sunroof was the problem, given the sunroof's placement at the rear of the vehicle, the water would collect in the back, not in the driver side floor depression. The water would have to run uphill to get there. I did think about that though, thanks for asking!
