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 floor 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.
Manual Climate Control
Note:   To reduce fogging of the windshield during humid weather, adjust the air distribution control to the windshield air vents position. Increase the temperature and fan speed to improve clearing, if required.
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 cabin 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:   At low ambient temperatures with AUTO selected, the system directs airflow to the windshield and side window vents and fan may run at a slow speed until the engine warms up.
