The heater/ac blend door is broken: The driver's side gets ac but the passenger side only receive hot air. This is a very common problem with this model Jeep. The dealer refuses to repair the problem under warranty. The vehicle is 2 months out of warranty and has 30,120 miles. Jeeps denies this is a common problem, and yet the internet is filled with Jeep blend door complaints.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • 4,000 miles
Jeep's climate control is not allowing permanent engagement of recirculation option which leads to allergens and pollutions from outside get inside of the vehicle without driver realizing it. Few times I was, literally, inches away from rear ending vehicles in front of me. When I'm going 60-65 mph on a highway and climate control opens intake for outside air, with my eyes becoming watery from allergy, I had to find that recirculation button to reengage it. It happens exactly every 5 minutes. When I brought vehicle to Jeep's dealer they told me that it's the way system built and there can be two ways to eliminated the hazard: Complete shut down of intake or climate control program update. I called Jeep's help line and explained the problem to their representative providing suggestions stated above. After that I was given 'great' explanation: Climate control acts this way because it was done by design !? based on that they refused to do anything to fix it. I have two other vehicles (Honda and Suzuki) and those cars don't have problem like Jeep has. This shows that all Jeep needs to do is issue software patch for their climate control program to take care of this issue.
