 I recently bought a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo and the heater do not work on the car. now that it is winter and very cold i do not have any heat at all. my windows will not defrost and it is becoming a huge problem. i see that it is a common problem after doing more research and why haven't it been recalled yet. according to reports that i have pulled up for the repair the part alone is running about $130 and i don't even want to discuss the cost of labor. what are you going to do? jw *tr
