Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

One editor complained about how complicated the 2013 Dodge Dart's A/C controls are. Now we're complaining about how the temperature controls are too simple.

  • fordson1fordson1 Unconfirmed Posts: 1,512 have manual heat and A/C, not climate control, as stated in the Riswick post you linked to. In manual systems, there is no thermostat, and no way to set a specific temperature setting. It's been this way for 50 years that I know of. So yeah, it's just you. Why am I having to tell something like this to someone who works at Edmunds?

    This seems to be the auto journalist's dream. How many car reviews have I read that have begged for a simple three-dial HVAC interface with a blue-to-red temperature control. I guess this is what you get when you have a touchscreen combined with an old-school blue-to-red temperature control.

    It's interesting that this and JRiz's post both missed some pretty obvious concepts on the screen's HVAC status. Perhaps Dodge needs to upgrade to a 11" screen or something.

    Not climate control so no digits. You have an electronic interface to a manual system. A touch screen does not always imply sophistication.

    Wow, I can't get over how ignorant these reviewers are... They never went back and corrected their original review about how the climate control doesn't indicate fan speed, when indeed it does. Really bad... Now I question every review I have ever read here...
