I have always preferred to use the auto setting for climate on any vehicle that has this feature as much as possible. Unless there's excessive fog on the windshield, I have used the auto setting. With my 2012 SRX Luxury I am finding that the auto setting does not behave as I would expect it to. More specifically, I do not find the direction of air flow to be as I might expect. When it's moderately cold outside, or warm, the blowers sound like they're on high speed, but little air seems to come from the dash registers. I have the auto temp set at 75 degrees and yet I'm not feeling very warm. I changed to direction of airflow to dash and feet or defroster dash and feet, and what a difference that made. The fan speed was actually too high, and I was feeling more than comfortable in no time. I just can't understand why I should have to manually adjust the system to get air to blow from the dash vents. Shouldn't auto often mean that you can just set a temperature? What am I missing here?
