Buying a '96 CL 420 HELP!

I'm considering buying a 1996 CL 420. It's in great shape, great interior and fully loaded. One thing I found when inspecting the car was some water in the depression on the left side of the trunk. I checked all the seals and they look fine, and there isn't any rust. It had been raining heavily, so I'm hoping it could just be a loose tail lamp seal. The top of the trunk was dry, does not appear to be any mold. Smelled fine. I'm returning tomorrow for a test drive.
Is this a common problem with these cars?
