Mine doesn't get any louder. Maybe they designed it that way? I like it.
My first 2011 Cruze behaved like yours. I had the filing it wasn’t normal. So when I went to the car wash I realized that the smell of chemicals came inside without any problem. I went to the dealer and they replaced the actuator. My new 2012 it’s working “normal”. I could hear the sound difference from the very first day and in the car was no bad smells are coming thru.Crank your Cruze, turn on air conditioning and fan on three with air on fresh..or the straight arrow. Then push the recirculation button. Does it get louder and blow more air. (without touching any other button)? All the cars I've ever had before does, but my cruze does not so I wonder if it is actually changing form one setting to the other.
Thanks in advance for your help...
In the heat, it took my car a good 30-60 seconds to actually start cooling the air....that's the outside air temperature number, I believe.
...the actual a/c-setting number should be in the middle of the display and have slightly bigger (bolded) numbers.
Thanks for the replies all....I'm thinking somethings wrong..Our Maibu wails when on recirc...and is also colder on the recirc setting. On the Cruze can't "feel" or hear any difference...
I'm an air nut and I like it cold lol...t was 84 today and it keeps up but I like that quick hitting blast. You also can smell the fresh air after you've had it on recirculate awhile and turn it back to normal...I'm not smelling that either...so most it may be stuck one way or the other..
Thanks again for the quick help...
If you feel you are having an issue with your air I would suggest that you take your Cruze into the dealership and have them look into this for you. Please keep me posted on this issue. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.
