Had some friends in the rear seat complaining about the air not working real well for them. I had them fiddle around with the vents until the cool air was hitting them where it made them comfortable. They said it was passable, but that they wished the airflow was a little stronger. Glad I don't have to sit in the back, I don't deal with heat very well.

I have a 12' GC and the I always thought the AC was weak but I found its all really in the positioning of the vents. I rarely have passengers in my back seat but when I have they have always said the AC was fine.

Re: 2014 A/C Kind of Weak

Had a chance to put my AC to the test this weekend with the SoCal heat wave and triple digits (no where near the 125F of death valley) and the AC performed great. No complaints from my daughter in the back and my wife actually increase the temp on her side because it was too cold for her.

Re: 2014 A/C Kind of Weak

I notice it weak at times. Today in NJ it was 94 and at startup through the first 2 miles - it was weak. After a bit - it was passable - certainly not meat locker here. I notice two things - fan speed is less than I'm used to (on highest recirc) - and temp is higher than what I'm used to. I just got out of a 2010 MDX and it was never suspect. I also have an infiniti FX and it was never suspect either. When I take it in for its oil change - ill have the dealer check the refrigerant levels and system...

Good luck. I'm sure the dealer will say the usual first or second reply that they learn in auto mechanic academy 101. "It's working as designed" or "They all do that".

yep - I agree - that why I'm not running to them now - will be a waste of time - and - its not affecting me that significantly.

Re: 2014 A/C Kind of Weak

I'm also in Phoenix and also feel the ac is a tad weak. I wish you could turn off the rear Ac vents to get a little more pressure up front! 99% of the time that air is just being wasted in my car

There is a switch between the the two rear vents. You can turn it to full, half, or off.

I believe the setting you think is off is just floor ac

Re: 2014 A/C Kind of Weak

Wow, did not know that the Jeep even had floor vents in the rear. Good to know. I had never got in the back and looked before until today.
