Rear Seat Vents
The rear vents to cool passengers in the backseat (located on the back of the center console) is an items that has been on every kind of car for many many years...it's just a normal item now, like electric windows or an AM/FM Radio.
Well for some reason Lincoln couldn't get mine right, as when I have the a/c on to a comfortable range for front passengers, a weak amount of air comes out through the back seat vents making the rear passengers hot.
Dealer tried it and had the front a/c blasting which then pushed a nice volume of air through the rear vents. I explained to him that nobody would take much of a drive with the front a/c blasting away on the highest speed, it just wouldn't be comfortable for the front passengers. But my dealer says that air is coming out so there is nothing to fix, and I say BS!
To add insult to injury, a few days ago it was 90 degree's here in FL and I'm in the backseat of a friends $30k Kia and he has the a/c on at a comfortable/reasonable level for the front passengers, and his rear vents are blowing out more than enough air to keep my wife and I comfortable in the rear. A Kia for goodness sakes !!!! Can anyone tell me how your MKC's rear vents perform...especially those of you in warm weather states, although I presume the a/c and heat will work the same in the rear. But then again this is a Lincoln were talking about so all bets are off the table. Like many of the posts I've read on this forum, I too am getting more and more frustrated with my MKC. Thanks for any help you can provide.
