2012 Toyota Prius C: Simple Ventilation Controls

April 24, 2013

2012 Toyota Prius C

This, friends, is a simple HVAC setup. It's essentially one knob, one mode button and one fan button. Yes, there's an "off" button and an "auto" button as well, but it's a fairly Spartan arrangement.

The only way to make it simpler is to use more knobs, which clearly cost more money and that's not happening in this $23,000 hybrid.
