    Heat , MPG and part question

    I just bought a brand new 2017 jeep renegade latitude 4×4 a week ago. I have a few questions.
    - is it normal that the vents in the middle above the touch screen Dont blow out that much Heat? I have read somewhere else where people said they don't. Just was curious.

    - any suggestions for better MPG. I only seem to be getting like 13 to 14 mpg which seems crazy.

    - I noticed that behind the buttons on the steering wheel there is a cover missing to where the cords are located for the buttons on the one side. Anyone know if that peice is possible to buy online and where or something i would have to get the dealer to get? I live an hour from them so instead of driving there I was curious.

    Thanks for the help.

    Get the dealer to replace what's missing. Smart driving for better mpg, also depends on what environment you're driving in like hills or flat road, my 2014 sport blows good heat out of those vents but I usually keep it on low defogger for my weather

    Thanks for the reply. The vehicle gets hot fast when the heat is on but not a lot of air seems to come out the middle ones. When I close the side ones half way the middle ones seem to blow good then too I'm thinking it's just how it is.

    I have noticed in my 17 Altitude that the vents you speak of seem to work the best when the system is set to "Auto" vs trying to pick either foot, mid or defrost mode.

    As far as MPG it really dependent on the type of driving you do. I do about 50/50 city/hwy and get 24.5 but all in town it drops to 17-18.

    Thanks. I don't think I have the auto setting my latitude. The car gets hot fast I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a defect. I have read in other forums people saying there renegades are like what I said. So, i guess it's just how it is. When I out the a.c. on it blows a lot but not with heat in the middle vents.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
