Since there is no catagory for this issue I had to put visibility/wiper in order to even submit this form. There is no catagory for the heating system which there are a lot of problems!!! the accuator doors regulating the heat to the inside of the vehicle are broken. I thought by replacing the motor which controls them it would fix it. No such luck the doors are broken and not only are they almost impossible to reach without pulling the entire dashboard and console, the cost for it will be around $1500 and that is absurd for a part which is less than $100. The labor will be about $1300 to get to it. What is wrong with these people can't they design a vehicle that can be worked on without taking it apart to a level which makes me want to junk the car!! they should have put something other than plastic to control the heat in the vehicle. Now it is the middle of January in New Mexico and it is freezing. Thanks Jeep, I paid a lot of money for this SUV and I'll never buy another amreican car again!! I had to replace the transmission 2 years ago at the tune of $3500. I rarely go on a dirt road let alone drive fast or reckless. A transmission going out at 65,000 is absurd and poor design and manufacturing. This car is nickling and dimeing me to death!!
