My mom just bought a Nitro and water is leaking into the passenger side floor board. There is so much condensation built up in the AC ducts that water comes out of the defrost vent on the dash. I took down the cover from under the dash and water spilled into the floor. Condesation was all over the ducts and you could actually see the water line on the outside of one of the ducts. At first I didn't understand what was going on but I realized that no water was dripping on to the driveway as it sat parked. That tells me that the AC drain line is clogged or crimped. I googled this problem and saw that one other person had this problem. My mom will do the same thing he did tomorrow and take it back to the dealer to get it fixed. Man...less than 250 miles and it already has problems. I hope the Nitro proves to be a good vehicle for her. Anybody else have this problem?

Welcome to the forum and by the number of positive post I would say you will be happy with this vehicle. Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw and you can have an issue. But keep us posted on your progress and I am sure if you have questions we can try and help:)

I've used the A/C as well and haven't had a problem, hope everything works out for your mom and her Nitro!

UPDATE: My mom's Nitro is fixed. The service department told her that the plug was not removed when the vehicle was built which caused about 3 gallons of water to build up in the system. They drained it and let it run for a while to make sure everything was OK. I'm glad it was an easy fix and more importantly I'm glad i was right! :)

Do you know where the drain hose was located? So I can take the plug out of mine. It sounds like the exact same issue.

Welcome to the forum @Howdyj9. When you have a chance, head over to the Newbie Section (<click this) and say "Hi".
Tell us a little about yourself and your ride.
That way we can welcome you all proper like.

No "plug" in the A/C drain. If there was you would have found out a long time ago. lol
But it is possible the drain hose is plugged with crud.
Good info on its location here.
