Hi from Scotland
Just purchased a 12 month old 70th anniversary Compass as an economic runaround - had a Grand Cherokee as a second car some years go and loved it so when we needed another small 4x4 the Compass seemed ideal. No offroading planned but we are around 16 miles from the nearest city and winters can be tough in NE Scotland.
Anyway, I've noticed quite a lot of water condensation under the vehicle when it's running. Initially I thought it was a/c related but on testing it with the a/c switched off it was still fairly significant. The dealer has checked it out and informs me that it is the aircon and that the system kicks in whether it's switched on or off - only difference is you can control the internal temperaure.
At first I accepted this but on thinking it through I wonder if this is correct, as I've long understood that aircon usage increases your fuel consumption. So my question is - does the aircon system operate constantly creating condensation ?
