11 535??

I've got a 2010 xit, which while it has had its issues, I still love driving. Got a 2011 535 loaner today.

I don't get the climate control. Is the fan speed manually adjusted even on auto?

On my 2010, you have three "ranges" but it will go on hi fan when it is hot.
The 2011, seems to have 5 manually adjusted fan speeds.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Andrew

Yes, you have 5 ranges, and it will auto adjust. if you were no longer in auto, you would see something like 7-9 segments.
