For your heater to actually warm up the car inside.. I know this problem/issue has been hammered to death, but i was thinking aboiut it today...

About how long does it take for you to feel warmth from the heater in your car? Is there an actual statement that has how long it should really take to warm up your car? I've noticed that even when the temperature gauge in the car is in the middle, it still does not seem to be that hot...

I know there is a TSB out there as well for this.. but i am just not sure if its something I even qualify for.

Just curious..

Mine takes about 5 minutes or 3 klicks of driving. However, I do have the heated seats so I don't feel as cold and I also use the block heater every morning to speed up the heating.

turn the heat on full, push the recirculate button, put it to blow on feet of face not windshield, this should help. If I dont have it on recirculate it takes for ever to it to warm up... and I live in San Diego, it dont get dat cold.

Mine works great. I get heat faster than with my 2001 Ford Ranger with a 2.5 litre (God I hate the term litre) engine. The HVAC system in my Alty works super and my temperature guage rises to and stays at a position below the mid point (just a hair above the line below center).
