1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 from North America
Looks great, drives great, costs too much to maintain
I have an AC in my '99 Grand Cherokee Ltd with a will of its own too. And things seem to be getting worse since they started about a year or so. Here are the symptoms (in order of appearance in my little) :
- Sometimes when I start the car and turn on the AC to cool the air, hot air gets blown out of the window defogger or the leg vents.
- When the car has been parked outside (airport parking) for a few days and I turn it on and turn on the heater, only cold air comes out.
- If park the car for a short while (< 10 min) after having driven it for 20-30 min with the AC on, the AC does not cool the air, but the heater kicks in and starts heating
- The newest one to appear: when I turn on the AC the driver's side gets cooled, but the passenger's side gets hot air (like really heated air at 80 degrees)
I guess it's time to replace the car and get a Japanese one (again). I never had any issues with my Toyota before.
I've also had all the other things go out: warped rotors, blown out Infinity speakers in the dash...
I really think Jeep lost its quality label.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
