Check the soft top to make sure that it wasn't installed backwards. Found out this morning that my soft top was mounted incorrectly either from the factory or the dealer. Apparently you're supposed to unlatch from the passenger side and roll towards the driver side. To install, it's the opposite. I noticed arrows on the molded plastic yesterday when taking it off. When putting it back on today, I looked for the arrows and noticed that there was no way it would go one with the arrows pointing forward. I reversed the rolled up top and the install was much, much easier...
It sounds like you put the top on backwards? The arrows are to point forward. It requires a bit of muscle to push the ends down when the top is installed correctly. Also ensure that the channel wire is correctly seated.

I take my soft top on and off regularly and I have never had a leak even in extreme downpours.
