Hey guys,
When I was driving on the highway today with my window down I noticed that my air vents were blowing out hot air when the fan and all the controls were turned off. Is this normal?
Thanks

Normal?........I sort of guess it is acting the same as my 2012 Cruze.......Also my 2009 Miata.....My wifes 2008 Malibu.

Seems to me all these systems bleed a bit of heat.....likely because the air doors at the heater core don't seal as well as they could.

I have found that once I'm driving, I turn the temp full down (lowest temp) turn the fan on (position 1) and push 'recirculate'
Then I turn the fan off.

Following these steps makes it stay in recirculate, minimizing outside, pressurized air from entering the cabin.

Gotta do the steps with every restart though because the system defaults to outside air at the next startup.

I cannot think of a thing a dealer could do.

Unfortunately normal. The dashboard gets really hot, even in the winter, and heats the air going through the ducts.

Make sure the temperature is turned as far cold as it will go. The car still circulates air even when the vent is off to keep some fresh air in the cabin.
