Outside air ...

This might be a dumb questions but... Shouldn't I be feeling allot more air coming in through the vents while driving down the road with the recirculation turned off? Vents are set to upper body flow. Am I missing something or just a first time Jeep owner noobness?

I can't speak for the GC, but in my Liberty and Chevy Blazer, there was no additional airspeed whether the system was in recirculate or not.

Re: Outside air ...

It's just going to depend on your fan speed. It's not like it opens straight holes to the front grill where air gets rammed in. It just means the air in is from outside air not cabin air.

Re: Outside air ...

Same question I asked almost a year ago. In my other vehicles I get outside air when fan is off and recirc is off, not the case with the GC. I don't know what the logic is.

Re: Outside air ...

I'm guessing theres a block of plate to stop air from coming in. In my old saturn with the fan off you got air blowing through the vents. In my cadillac when the air was off, the air was off, no air blowing at all. Most likely a feature in these cars.

Re: Outside air ...

No, you will not get more air. One setting recirculates the air from within the vehicle, the other pulls from the outside. That is all the setting does. the amount of air you get is always depended on the fan speed, not the vehicle speed. Which is as it should be as it is more predictable and controlable.

Re: Outside air ...

The last time I remember air being directly vented into my car from the outside without the fan running was back in the 60's or 70's. There were little handles, or pull knobs down in the footwell that opened a baffle to let the air in. Of course most cars didn't have a/c in those days. Ever since then, I've needed to turn the fan on to get the outside air blowing into the cabin. Could be just something with the cars I've owned, don't know for sure. Also, automatic transmissions were born about the same time I was born!

Re: Outside air ...

Thank you for the input, my 2004 Toyota Tacoma did just that, outside air meant as you drive own the road air wold flow into the cabin. My wife 2012 RAV4 does this as well and as soon as you switch to recirculated air would stop.

Having to run the blower to get air flow is just a recipe for gas consumption and early blower wear and tear, that's to bad.

Loving the vehicle so far though! Awesome smoothness and power for a V6 rwd.
