Compass heater question
Hi, So i got my license and Compass about 8 months ago. I live in Ottawa, and most people here, from Canada will know it is very cold out here. I am an international student from a warm country, and this is my first time driving in these winter conditions. I do not have the remote starter, and the heater seems to take a long time to heat up. University is about a fifteen minute drive, and by the time I enter the parking lot there, the heater finally starts to heat up properly. Any suggestions to heat the car up faster? I live in an apartment building with outdoor parking and do not feel comfortable leaving the car on, unattended, for like 15 minutes till it heats up.
The Necessary Evil
It's sounds like an engine block heater is out of the question for an apartment dweller. The only real solution in your case is a remote start. If you have the Security System them I believe that you can only get that one from Jeep and it has to be programmed. If you don't have the Security System, that one is available threw Jeep and several aftermarket manufactures.

You could try doing that and see if that helps. The cold air hitting the rad so easily isn't helping the engine get warm by any means.
