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.
Automatic Climate Control
Note:   Adjusting the settings when your vehicle interior is extremely hot or cold is not necessary. Automatic mode is best recommended to maintain set temperature.
Note:   The system adjusts to heat or cool the interior to the temperature you select as quickly as possible.
Note:   For the system to function efficiently, the instrument panel and side air vents should be fully open.
Note:   If you select AUTO during cold outside temperatures, the system directs air flow to the windshield and side window air vents. In addition, the blower motor 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 uses recirculated air to maximize interior cooling. Blower motor speed may also reduce until the air cools.
