Thanks for your reply. I took my Jeep to another dealership and they said that the location of the leak appeared to be near the heater core. So I suspect it's an issue with the clamp(s). Hopefully Jeep is aware of this problem so that no one else has to deal with this... Thanks again!

The dealership I took it to originally told me that I needed to go to the dealership where I purchased the vehicle (nearly 3 hours away!) because they'd be able to do more for me since it's under warranty. That shouldn't be the case (as proven by the dealership I'm happily working with now). I suspect the dealership that sent me away is upset that I didn't purchase my Jeep from them. But that really shouldn't matter. I used to get my other car serviced with them, but no more. From now on I'll be driving the extra 30 miles to do business where I get better service.
Awesome and good for you. Dealers can suck; glad you found one who is happy to work with you.
