So I just noticed a small pool of liquid under my jeep today after arriving at work. the pool was about inches across between the front wheels in the center. I have the top off so I was not using the AC/Defroster/etc. Any thoughts. The jeep is a month old. Is this something the dealership would look at without cost?

If you're under warranty, obviously they dealer will look at it for you.

Now, with that said, can you give us some details of the fluid? Was it colored? Did it smell? Did it feel oily? Did it evaporate?

Most modern cars AC system is activated when the defog or defroster is used, so yes. Our Jeeps condensation drain tube is near the center, toward the passengers side, of the firewall. It could drip for several days depending on parking angles, etc.

I had that happen at Bantam Jeep Festival. Scared the crap out of me, we were doing some of the trails and after one of them I took a look under the Jeep just to make sure all was good. I saw the dripping and freaked. Then I realized we had the defroster on partial. It is really easy to not notice the A/C running when the top is off.
I got some on my finger, realized it was water, and looked at the ventilation controls. Crisis averted.

I am not sure of the color or viscosity of the liquid. Will check next time I see a pool. I wouldnt think it is condensation because I have had the top and doors off for 3 days now. Havent used the AC/Defroster all week. I have an appointment with the dealership tomorrow. Will find out then.

All it takes for the defroster is having it set to blend the floor vents and the defroster. It automatically calls for A/C if any amount of defrost is called for. Also, the button that turns on the A/C is easy to accidentally hit, say when shifting gears. With the top off it is hard to notice.
It may be something else, but I would look there first.

Hi JezusChrizt,

Sounds like you're still under the basic warranty if the Jeep is only 2 months old, so your dealership should definitely take a look at no cost to you. Send us a private message if you need any help getting an appointment set up!
