What position do you have the stratified air dial? This is the dial (#3) in the middle of the dash's center vent that allows the front passengers to "temper" the air from those vents warmer or cooler...independent of the set temp that is coming from the floor or defrost vents.

That's what happened to me when I first try using the heat in the X. Finally read the owner manual and found out about the thumbwheel in the center of the vent.
