Review: Jeep Compass (2011 – 2014)


Has full time AWD. Strong chain cam 2.2 litre diesel engine. Decent handling and grip.

The quality of the trim won't appeal it to someone who pines for a Range Rover Evoque.

Why is my heater blowing cold air?

My 2011 Jeep Compass heater is blowing cold air all the time. Any ideas on what is wrong?
That means that hot coolant from the engine is not reaching or is not circulating through the heater matrix. May be a stuck electric valve.
