With this setting, you attain maximum comfort in the least amount of time. Change this setting, as desired, to meet your personal needs. The climate controls are a combination of heating, ventilation and cooling systems, which automatically reduce humidity and cool the air inside your vehicle. The climate control automatically maintains a temperature once it has been set.
The temperature of the air from the vents, fan speed (air volume) and air distribution are also automatically adjusted. The system also takes into account strong sunshine so that manual adjustment is not necessary. So in almost all cases, automatic mode offers the best conditions for the comfort of the occupants at all times of the year. Please note the following: Turn on the air conditioner to reduce humidity in the vehicle.
This also prevents the windows from fogging up. When the outside temperature is high and the air is very humid, condensation from the evaporator may drip under the vehicle. This is normal and does not indicate a leak. If the outside temperature is low, the fan normally only switches to a higher speed once the engine coolant has warmed up sufficiently.
The air conditioner temporarily switches off when you drive off from a standstill using full throttle to save engine power. The compressor also switches off if the coolant temperature is too high so that the engine can be adequately cooled under extreme loads. The dust and pollen filter (a combined particle filter and activated charcoal filter) reduces or prevents outside an air pollution (dust, or pollen) from entering the vehicle. The dust and pollen filter must be changed at the intervals specified in your Maintenance booklet so that the air conditioner can properly work.
