General Hints
Note:  Prolonged use of recirculated air may cause the windows to fog up.
Note:  You may feel a small amount of air from the footwell air vents regardless of the air distribution setting.
Note:  To reduce humidity build-up inside your vehicle, do not drive with the system switched off or with recirculated air always switched on.
Note:  Do not place objects under the front seats as this may interfere with the airflow to the rear seats.
Note:  Remove any snow, ice or leaves from the air intake area at the base of the windshield.
Note:  To improve the time to reach a comfortable temperature in hot weather, drive with the windows open until you feel cold air through the air vents.
Manual Climate Control
Note:  To reduce fogging of the windshield during humid weather, adjust the air distribution control to the windshield air vents position.
Automatic Climate Control
Note:  Adjusting the settings when your vehicle interior is extremely hot or cold is not necessary.The system automatically adjusts to heat or cool the interior to your selected temperature as quickly as possible.For the system to function efficiently, the instrument panel and side air vents should be fully open.
Note:  If you select AUTO during cold temperatures, the system directs airflow to the windshield and side window vents. In addition, the fan may run at a slower speed until the engine warms up.
Note:  If you select AUTO during hot temperatures and the inside of the vehicle is hot, the system automatically uses recirculated air to maximize interior cooling. Fan speed may also reduce until the air cools.
