    How can I get the air recirculate setting to be saved? Every time I take a drive, I have to change it back to recirculate.

    Oh man. This! It annoys me cuz it does not save. I hate sucking in the toxic fumes from ice in front of me. Want recirculated air only.

    The fires here is SoCal are really bad and constant. Today I drove through the smoke and noticed that at some point in my drive the air vent opened and I was breathing in the smoke. I had to turn on recirculation... again... to avoid breathing anymore of the smoke.

    In general, SoCal, especially Los Angeles, has really bad air quality regardless of the fires.

    I don't understand why, if we have A/C on, we can't keep recirculation on since the A/C part already dries the air and prevents windows from fogging up.

    I think this is definitely something Tesla needs to ponder and come up with a solution for.

    This would be easy to add since Tesla provides personalized driver settings.

    Like the S we need the chemical defense/hepa filters as an OEM option as well. Are there any good aftermarket filters that come close to S ?

    For me, I notice mine is usually on circulate and I get concerned that it stays on circulate when the car is off because it traps in moisture which creates or contributes to the build-up of that fun stinky smell. Happens in ICE cars too.
    But I hear you guys in certain situations where you may want to keep circulate on, even while parked - Ash from wildfires as an example.

    Probably not - the HEPA filter is absolutely massive and anything close to that good would probably not allow enough airflow.
