To reduce fog build-up on the windshield during humid weather, select Defrost. You can also improve clearing by increasing the temperature and fan speed.

To reduce humidity build-up inside the vehicle, do not drive with the system off or with recirculated air engaged.

Do not put objects under the front seats that will interfere with the airflow to the back seats.

Remove any snow, ice or leaves from the air intake area at the base of the windshield.

To improve the air conditioning cool down, drive with the windows slightly open for 2-3 minutes after start-up or until you have aired out the vehicle.

You may feel a small amount of air from the floor vent regardless of the air distribution setting you select.

During extreme high ambient temperatures when idling stationary for extended periods in gear, run the air conditioning in the MAX A/C mode, adjust the blower fan speed to the lowest setting and put the vehicles transmission into position P (automatic transmission) to continue to receive cool air from your air conditioning system.

For maximum cooling performance in A/C mode, press MAX A/C.

1. Move temperature control to the coolest setting.

2. Select A/C and recirculated air to provide colder airflow.

3. Set the fan to the highest speed initially, and then adjust to maintain comfort.

To aid in side window defogging and demisting in cold or humid weather:

1. Select Floor/Panel.

2. Select A/C.

3. Adjust the temperature control to maintain comfort.

4. Set the fan speed to the highest setting.
