Just went for a 20 mile drive down a highway at 60-70 mph the entire way.

The vent temperatures were between 45-48 all the time even at the end.

I started out from a garage that was about 97 degrees and the outside temperature was about 86 degrees.

There was no major increase in temperatures even when stopped at a light for a few minutes. Except my temperature increased when some idiot ran the light and almost t-boned me!

Just wondering. If shutting off the intake vents and using Recirculate causes the system to draw in air from the cabin by the footwells, would it be better to keep the selector dial turned so that air comes out of the footwells instead of the vent for the first few minutes, so that it is sucking in cold air instead of the normally hot air that is there?
