My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee had this same problem with leaking. I was told that this car's AC drains into the unibody, and a repair shop drilled a hole I thought that they said in the unibody, but nothing came out, so they recommended the $800 A/C job. I know that they had to take the dash out to get to the drainage hose, but I don't get the part about it draining in the unibody.
Anyway, now my backseats are completely molded. I was going to trade and just lose money, but now that I know what the repair should be, I will have to see if it is worth fixing the problem.
This was a great car and in great shape, but I immediately started having issues. Thank God I bought a warranty, because it has had to have a lot of major work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
