    Took a trip with a passenger in the back and needed to use the A/C. It works fine for the driver and front seat passenger but was putting out hot (!) air from the vent at the rear of the console. A/C was set at 73; lowered it to 68 and the air cooled down a bit, but still not as cold as the air coming out of the front vents. I don't see anything about this in the OM.

    Any thoughts on how to equalize the temperature?

    Thanks!

    Was the temp set to sync? Maybe the rear seats blow the passenger temp.

    The settings above are the most effective way of getting ac to you rear passengers
    If you click the icons on the very left that direct the air, the top and bottom redirects the air and you lose some air flow to the back passengers.
    Also on the very right bottom icon make sure this is on the position.
