  • 13,000 miles
HVAC system not working correctly; system cycles off/on rapidly and unable to maintain desire internal temperature of Jeep. Has been taken to Jeep dealer twice in 3 weeks without having situation fixed. Jeep service manager states "we know of issue, have no repair at this time, but not considered an official problem by Chrysler at this time". I am left with a brand new Jeep that has a malfunctioning A/C and heater which can't be repaired and will not be replaced by dealer. I am in a very difficult position, please help.

Sitting in parking lot with air conditioner on & suddenly ac started blowing hot air. Climate control automatically turned itself off. When I turned it to max ac it blew cold air. Then I returned it back to ac and it blew cold air again. Approximately 2 weeks later, mph at 60, same thing happened. When I took it in for service, technician explained it as coils freezing up because of humidity. No action was performed.

Vehicle traveling at 5 mph, A/C on max, fan speed at highest setting. A loud "pop", followed by a rush of refrigerant through the vents. The vents had been pointed directly at my face and I immediately started choking. Within 3 seconds, the entire interior had been flooded with this dense fog of refrigerant. I could not see, I could not breathe, I thought my Jeep was trying to kill me. I managed to stop the vehicle, open the door and exit before I choked to death. I opened all of the doors and let the vehicle "air out" before getting back in to drive home. The vehicle is being serviced at the dealer right now. The failure is a leak in the evaporator coil.
