Hi all,

I'm Tom checking in from the Bay Area. Bought a GT CX-3 in Soul Red from Fremont Mazda before the year ended and couldn't be happier. I have been looking at getting a Mazda 3 when they redesigned with their new 'kodo' design and am glad that spread throughout their entire line. I went from wanting a Mazda 3 to CX-5 as I wanted to be higher off the ground. After checking out the CX-3 decided that was the car for me!

One question for you all... Does your A/C blow warmer air when on settings not 60? That has been the only thing bothering me so far and I have service scheduled but if its normal, would love to cancel. I'm talking about the setting being around ~65ish and medium - high fan speed with A/C on.

Cheers,
Tom

Welcome and congrats!

I can't say I've noticed the AC blowing warm air, but I haven't tried turning the AC on in the cold. I'm assuming it may be blowing warmer air because its already colder than the 65 degrees you're setting it on.

I bought mine in September and it had been unseasonably warm here up until recently, the AC was working fine on the warmer days and I usually had it set at around 72 degrees.

Congrats on the purchase and welcome!

I'm in Seattle and haven't used A/C yet. Hopefully others in warmer areas can chime in to validate.

Welcome to the forum.

I think you'll find the AC is fully temperature dependant and will start to blow very cold when the weather is warmer. There is a needle valve inside the unit that can freeze up if the AC gets too cold.

Thank you all for the response and the warm welcome!

My old car was very simple so didn't think of cockpit sensors that may be adjusting the A/C accordingly. I'll cancel for now and if I think its problematic, take it in during the warranty period. Thank you again all =)
