From the day 1 I purchased this vehicle water is dropping from ac on a passenger side. Dealer tried to repair, even changed mats. Did not help. There is a bad smell inside the vehicle if I keep it locked after using ac.

Nissan Xterras are on recall in northern states due to snow and salt affecting the front crash sensor. I bought my Nissan intexas but work for the army and live in germany where there is plenty of ice and snow. Nissan said because I bought my car in Texas, it isn't covered under the recall. They need to recall all vehicles with this safety flaw.
