Model Years Affected: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014

Average Mileage: 69,322 mi (7,000 mi - 105,210 mi)


The carpet under the right side of the dash may become wet with water. This can be caused by the AC evaporator drain being plugged with debris. Our technicians tell us that once the drain is clear, a cabin air filter should be installed to keep debris out.

    Passenger side floorboards soaked, front and back. Could hear the water running out of the dash into my car. Hope they will clean or replace carpet as I don't want a new car that smells horrible.

    Started hearing a weird sound when turning or quickly slowing down. Then when I got back in the car later I drove about 1 mile and started hearing water pouring inside the car on the right side under the glove box. The floor was wet and I saw water driping from a hose that ran down under the rightside of dash to the floor under the carpet.

    I had my transmission rebuilt.. When u got it back my carpets were getting wet. Took it back and the mechanic blew a bunch of leaves from my ac underneath the glove box..

    I noticed this problem last week and have yet to get the situation resolved though I do know this is due to the A/C evaporator drain line either being clogged or kinked. I plan to remedy this problem myself today and save myself the added bill with a mechanic. Searching online for tutorials.
