Mine will do the same thing. It appears to happen randomly though, just as with you only the passenger side gets turned all the way up.
For what it's worth I also notice that when it happens the USB podcasts I have don't automatically play, and the Uconnect defaults to the radio. About 95% of the time when I get in the Jeep and start it up, the USB flash drive starts playing the MP3 right where it left off automatically. About 5% of the time it goes straight to radio, when I go to the 'media' screen, there is no drive detected and I have to remove the USB flash drive and put it back in. When this happens, the passenger heat is all the way up and I need to resync.
I just figured it was the terrible buggy laggy Uconnect system that is not ready for prime time. It's been my only issue with the Jeep so far. Maybe it reboots itself and sets back to some default where the heat isn't in sync?
