Without a working air conditioner, the interior of your car can get very hot. Most models come with air conditioning as a standard feature, but you’ll need to verify that yours has it (some don’t). Here’s how to turn on and use the A/C:

  1. Set the fan speed to your preferred rate

  2. Set the mode to upper vents

  3. Push the A/C button on the dash

  4. Set the temperature knob to your preferred level

Tips

  • To cool your car faster, set it to max A/C, set the fan to high, set the temperature to the lowest setting, and turn on recirculate.

  • If you’re driving in Econ mode, you might experience temperature fluctuations with the air conditioner on.

  • When you use the max A/C, Econ mode is automatically turned off.
