Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan Automatic HVAC
The Milan is the first car I owned with auto HVAC. I always pictured that as set the controls once and forget about it. But, I find myself re-adjusting the controls much more than with the manual controls on earlier cars that I owned. Is my experience typical of auto HVAC or the the Milan/Fusion not work as well as other cars?

The fan will stay on high for a couple of minutes regardless of the temperature and it is a little annoying but just adjust the temp and leave it alone and it should settle down. I also heard there was a TSB for a computer reflash that would help that problem.
As you point out, another factor might be my impatience :-)
Is this a design flaw.....should I have the dealer check it out? Or is it just how this model is...???
It also lowers MPG a fair amount (1-2 MPG depending on vehicle). I leave my A/C off until I need it (sometimes in the rain, or if it's toasty outside. Otherwise, I leave it disengaged and save the fuel. By the way, I'm from the deep south and do understand humidity, but 100% A/C use is completely unnecessary. Put the system in auto in the warm months or on "foggy-window days," but you can leave it off otherwise.
Looks like if you have the automatic HVAC, regardless of running it on "auto" mode at 90 degree or having manually set with full fan on (again at 90 degrees), it will never be as hot as those with the manual, dial-mode HVAC
