In Reply to: understanding how the heat blows.... posted by Daryl Welsh on December 30, 1998 at 20:11:58:

If you don't spin the little wheel in the midldle vents to the red position, you will get ZERO heat. If my dealer hadn't told me about this dumb feature, I would have returned the car after a few days!

: When the car is cold, the AUTO feature doesn't start blowing out cold-air as most cars do, but waits for the internal tempature to climb before sending air thru the vents.

: I think this is a pretty cool feature. I always hated getting into an ice cold car then having the 'heater' blow cold air on me for the first 3 to 5 minutes
