2007 Infiniti G35 Sport: Not a Fan of HVAC System
December 20, 2007
Directly below the slot of the CD player you see above you is the HVAC system for the beloved Infiniti G35 Sport. Southern California was afflicted with a particularly beguiling weather condition the last few days we believe you people call "rain," so frequently the interior of the car had to be defogged.
You hit the top defog button (front window), which curiously sets off the A/C, which you then turn off. I have a friend who swears that this actually works faster than just heat because it equalizes with the cold outside.
But what it really made me think is, I really don't care for the buttons here. The blower is two buttons (up and down), and the temperature dials are like volume knobs and don't really have a tactile feel.
I love all the G35's modern conveniences: great nav, keyless ignition and entry, etc. But for climate control, give me old-fashioned knobs and sliders any day. In this instance, I think the Honda Fit has it beat.
