2018 titanium with ~ 3,000 miles.  


Using the auto AC - it seems wholly inaccurate, meaning not cold enough to reflect the setting.  At 71F auto setting, it doesn't cool well.  Yesterday, I tried max AC for the first time and surprisingly, it feels cool, but not cold.  Anyone else seeing inaccurate readings with theirs? 


Today on the drive home, I'll be using a temperature probe in the vents to measure actual F-temp output and report back tomorrow.

A lot of my friends don't seem to like me setting the temp at Auto 72F because the fan is usually running at a lower speed, if I put it on MAX AC usually it gets painfully cold unless it's 95-100F..  I would definitely try some of those temperature probes.  I don't think the "dual zone" climate control works that great, seems more like a sales gimmick to me. 


Don't forget about the large vent below/underside of the screen area, Try opening or closing it to see if it suits your needs better, with it open the front seat passengers seem to get more air dumped directly on them, with it closed more air is diverted through the smaller vents throughout the car..
