I was driving and heat stopped flowing and A/C stopped flowing. It is winter time so the front windshield was unable to defrost, leaving the windshield foggy and hazardous to drive in.

The HVAC system has many faulty issues which directly effects the ability of the defroster to operate properly if at all. The blend doors as well as the recirculating door are defective. The air ducts do not blow evenly. This causes the inability of the temperature control unit to effectively defrost the windshield while driving down the highway.

problem #3

Grand Cherokee

  • 160,000 miles
Blend doors broken causing no heat to driver side of the cabin. In winter driving, air is so cold it causes numbing of the drivers foot and leg which causes difficulty in moving from the accelerator to the brake. This condition occurs under all conditions, from start up to shut down. This affects the drivers ability to respond to necessary braking conditions, especially in emergency situations. Cost to repair condition is in excess of $1200. Research is that this condition occurs to the majority of vehicles with this make, model, and will reoccurs multiple times in the vehicles lifetime.

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
The blend doors that control the heat for defrosting the windshield for safe clear visibility break about every three years. My vehicle has had this happen three times since I bought the car new. It is always the same thing the needs to be fixed. Plastic material that hold the blend doors break in the same spot. The cost averages $ $1400 to repair.
