HVAC air flow restricted to defrost vents on top of dash, but AC flows to rear of vehicle via roof vents. However, when using heater, heat is only obtained through dash defrost vents and not the dash front, floor, or rear of the vehicle.
A/C will not blow cold while at idle or low speed driving. highway driving is just okay.
Driver's side A/C switches from cooling to full-on heat, but thermostat seems to work, because it increases fan speed to attempt to lower cabin temperature, by blowing blazing hot air!
