Temperature Control Question


I have a question about my 2013 X1 and its interior temperature control. When I set it to 70, should it keep the interior temperature to 70? I ask because mine does not seem to work that way. It seems to go by the outside temperature. If its cool outside but sunny, and hence warm in the car, I have to turn the temperature down as low as 62, just to feel comfortable.

BTW, I am someone is quite AC adverse as I always feel cold but in my X1 I all too often feel warm.

I've got the 2014 S28i, and everyone tells me I don't know Jack, but it seems that the temp of air out of system is close to temp set.

Of course on a hotter day, I found that I was using it at 69 deg instead of the normal 73, etc.

It takes maybe 15 minutes to get car temp near perfect when hot and sunny.

In fact I don't think I've ever gotten uniform temp in a car when it's hot.

There's too much temp differential around windows, etc.

My AC is a beast if I punch the max cool button, and I have to turn down fan and temp within a minute.

Get a refridge thermometer, and see if you can get 60 deg air coming out.

Mine has definite temp change of actual air when temp # is dialed in.
