You suck. lol.

My arms literally rust (not joking) because of the steel dust mixing with my sweat. And then I walk into the break room or and office, and almost freeze to death every time.

Off topic sorry.

Auto climate control is one of the greatest inventions of all time and I will never buy another vehicle that doesnt have it.
That's funny...I just hate that auto climate control and my buddy loves it.

Im not kidding when I say I started driving my F-150 in December of 09 and set the climate control at 70 degrees and have not touched it since. When its cold out it turns on the heat and defrost and when its hot it turns on the AC, i love it! In my ranger and especially my wifes stupid blazer im constantly messing with the dials, its either too hot or too cold with no in between. Im spoiled in my F-150. lol

Mine has been dead since last August. I used it when it was 85+, humid, or no breeze. Or if i was sitting in traffic. If I'm driving, windows are down. I miss my AC lol.

Our Escape has the auto climate control with different passenger & driver temps if you want. Sure it all mixes together eventually but I like having some A/C blasting on me and the wife is always cold so it works well IMO. The one thing I miss about our MKX is that it had seat cooling too. Nothing like a cool a** and back after being out in the heat.

too hot and humid here normally, I also don't have power windows so too much effort to put down passenger window. I'll put driver window down in the evening when it's cooler outside.

I use mine when the woman is in the truck, or when its 105* out then I use it with the windows down. But mostly 4 windows down is enough.

I live in the Coachella Valley. Believe me, just about everyone out here uses A/C if they have it. I'll be using it in December or January because we hit high 80s sometimes during those months. 120 last week? Yeah, I think I'll use the A/C.

i normally never use my ac. ive used it today and yesterday cuz its been so damn hot. like 97 and humid. normally windows down is fine for me, i hate going from an aced truck to outside or even inside the house because no one up here has ac in the house. but of course when the girl gets in the truck she rolls up her window because she hates it.. so normally the air is on like three floor and dash setting

I use the AC 75 percent of the time. Anywhere from 80 degrees on up. At night time, the temp will drop down to mid 60s or so and then I will roll the windows down.

Warm temperatures+traffic*a long day at work=insane amounts of irritability and road rage. If I can knock one of those off, it drastically reduces the rage.

If I lived in Phoenix or Vegas, or an area like that...it would be on high 100 percent of the time.

I do use it in the 80s or warmer, but it feels like it takes away a too much power when taking off from a stop. If I don't keep the rpms at 1500-2000 with a/c it bogs very easily. Maybe I just need to do some small hp mods to help out with it.
