    Default Vauxhalls Nucular Heating!

    I dont know about other cars or vauxhalls with Climate Control but what is it about Vauxhalls manual heaters. its like having a blast furnace in the car with you after about 10 minutes!!


    ive had three vauxhalls (corsa,astra,vectra) and there all the same i can actually feel my face burning if you lean down to get somthing out of the glove box!

    my parents renult and mazda are garbage and they were fighting over who took my car to work when i lent it them while i was on deployment over christmas......this was just for the heater! lol

    Wish mine was that good. I do a 20 minute drive every morning taking the wife to work and by the time I get home, the heater is luke warm, if i'm lucky!

    The only cure is to drive in 2nd gear everywhere with the revs around 5000 until I get some heat! Worse car i've ever owed for crap heaters! (Wish I still had my Nova)!

    I find the climate control is quite clever - if you select at high temperature it won't turn the blowers on till the engine has become warm enough, then slowly increases the fan till the engine is fully warm...

    Heater on my 1.9 CDTI is worse than useless. Never bother with it, just turn the aircon on to clear the carp on inside of windscree.
    Don't care though, heaters are for pansies

    1.9cdti - heater (climate control) is fine if you're still alive by the time it comes through. Not too bad if you're belting along somewhere (maybe 5-10 minutes) but if you're just pootering through traffic it takes forever and a day.
