2009 Mazda 6: Cool as a Cucumber

When I was growing up every car in my household was a Chevy. My Dad had two Chevys, my oldest brother had one, my sister had one, my Aunt who worked for my Dad, had one.

I grew up expecting all cars to have powerful, cold-blasting air conditioners. So, forgive me if I'm a little obsessed with the subject.

After sitting in our company garage all day, the cars get pretty toasty. So, I was very happy last night when I got into the Mazda 6 and found the A/C to be Chevyriffic. It has dual zones so my less heat-stricken passengers can control their own environment, the vents are well placed, the dials are easy to use without needing a degree in environmental science (unlike some other cars in our fleet <cough>Audi</cough>), the air flows strong and quietly, and the system cools the whole cabin quickly.

Happy happy joy joy.

Tell us about the A/C in your car.
