Vehicle has no heat on driver side vent and floor vents, cold air comes out as if the A/C is on. As time has passed cool air on front window defroster as well as center and passenger vents. Vehicle is warmed up when trying to turn heat on with no positive results. Online Jeep forums list this as a problem to Jeep Wrangler. Dealership stated they are unaware of this problem. This is a safety issue to defrost windows for visibility, and should be a recall. Vehicle is almost 3 years old.
