Okay, so I think know what's going on but I just want to make sure. I saw a pool of water under my Jeep while it was running with the AC on.

Is this normal? Just water coming out of the AC? Should I be worried? Just want to make sure. The vehicle is brand new 3 months old with 6K km's so it's under warranty and I can take it to the dealer but just want to make sure that it's an issue worth looking into first.

Thanks

Any AC system (vehicle, house) expends most of its energy removing moisture due to the high latent heat of water.
On a humid day (dew point >50F) a considerable amount of moisture is removed and is dumped under the Jeep. Perfectly normal!

Thank you guys, I was fairly sure this was normal but just wanted to make sure as I haven't seen this happen on any of my other cars. But they have all been brand new BMW's or other such luxury brand so they must have a better way to outlet the water I guess.

I find water under my BMW and my wife's Volvo as well...

Maybe they are just way too low and I never paid enough attention....
LOL probably! My Z4 is 4 inches above ground. On the Volvo SUV, you can see a trail of water drops in the driveway when my wife comes home.
