2003 GMC Yukon XL 2500 133,000 mi,
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.
2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500 149,000 mi,
A/C will not blow cold while at idle or low speed driving. highway driving is just okay.
2004 GMC Yukon XL 2500 85,000 mi,
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!
