As what the title has described, the vehicles provide no protection from raining. I have tested M3S and Ada with all doors and hoods installed but the phenomenon still exist. Everything in equipped clothes and backpack get wet, soaked, or drenched. Besides, I also noticed that the Drybag Backpacks and Drysacks do not provide waterproof functionality in such circumstances neither, things stored in them still get wet while raining.

Spawn some vehicles, get in, and change the weather to rain by admin tools, then just observe.
Tested this today (again) on a local server (no mods) and can confirm this bug. client and server both latest version for pc (steam).
Vehicles where fully assembled and you still get wet inside the vehicle. When you put something in waterproof clothes or waterproof bags (backpack or drysack) it normally stays dry. When the player is inside a vehicle, everything inside these "waterproof containers" gets wet.
This bug was also reported on steam with an earlier version of 1.17: bug report on steam
I don't know why this is categorized as "Feature Request". The described problem doesn't exist in v1.16. You (and all things you have in your bags) stayed dry when you sit in a fully assembled car while it was raining. Even when it wasn't ok in v1.16, things getting wet inside drybacks only because you are sitting in a car is not a feature, its a bug.
Sorry but I'm really not sure which category is the best to choose, though the post is submitted as a bug report. I got my first vehicle and noticed this phenomenon after update 1.17 so I don't know it was all right in Previous versions and thought it was always like this.
How come this issue is not even accknowledged yet? Happens on all servers, vanilla and modded. It came with the change to heat comfort from heat sources a couple of patches back.
In short, this is how it should be:
- If car has all doors and all windows are whole - players should not get wet
- If doors are missing or windows broken - player by missing door/window gets wet
- If windscreen broken - players in driver and codriver seats get wet
- Rear window - players in back seat get wet
Until you are able to achieve that - make the car protect against rain regardless. Getting wet when sitting in a completed car is ridiculous - and a recipe for death in cold weather servers.
An interesting facet to this:
If you have 2x protector cases, and 2x matches.
Put one in your inventory, and one on the boot (trunk) if the car
The matches in the container in your inventory become damp, but the ones in the trunk do not.
