The ac drain leaks water under the dash when the ac is on and may affect the air bag wiring or other electrical functions. This problem was identified in 2011, bulletin K31, but my VIN was not included. I have the same make, model, year and problem as the recalled cars. Why is my car not included in this recall?? I have struggled with this recurring issue since 2014!!!
