Cabin air temperature - freeze or burn

    Being an old school kind of guy, I prefer to use the manual mode to control the air temperature. Plus, I like to control which vents the air blows through - something that I cannot select in Auto mode.

    I have noticed that there is virtually no difference in the cabin air temperature when the control dial setting is anywhere between 18.5C and "HI"- it is just blows the same Hot air. This is with outdoor temperature hovering around -5C, so there is plenty of outside cold air to mix with air going through the heater core.

    If I set the control dial half a degree cooler at 18C, it changes to Cold - there is not gradient!

    Anyone else experienced this or am I using it the wrong way?

    I have not had that problem at all, here in Northern Farenheit Land; works well in manual. Variable as desired. I'd go to the dealer for a checkup.

    I had to convert that 18.5 C. to 65 F. :)
    I've never had my temperature set that low, even in the heat of summer. But I've also never had any problem setting the temperature to anything else I wanted. It sounds like you need to visit a dealer. :(
