2011 BMW X5 xDrive Questions

My X5 air vent runs intermittently hot in the vent mode; Any ideas? (1 answer)

The dealer tells me it is normal and that I should use the AC to keep thing climate controlled. The vent usually starts out blowing air at normal outside temperature but can suddenly turn hot not always when the engine is hot. Very uncomfortable problem. I hope someone can help.
