Yeh - I've seen similar probs., in different types of cars over the years. Whilst the sunroof can leak it normally doesn't cause water ingress to this extent. I would check the air intake area for the heater (normally just in front of the windscreen) - this area will have drainage holes which tend to get blocked by leaves etc. When the water can't get away it flows through the heater air inlet down the back of the carpets and ends up runing towards the back of the car. If the car is fitted with a pollen filter you'll probably find its needs replacing. Remember if air can get into the cab so can water - always check the easy bits first. Let us know what happens. Unfortunately water ingress to this extent can cause aditional damage (rotted carpets, short circuits in wiring, etc) - get it sorted ASAP or you'll hit worse problems in the near future. Hope this helps.
