    Really? Your 16 Civic does the same thing when you press the voice prompt or touch the mic or have Google/Siri read you the message.

    I'm not a fan of a feature like this -- when it's hot, I want lots of air flow. This is especially true in the 95-degree, 92% humidity days that we often have in the Philly area in July and August. I'll gladly turn up the volume or repeat a voice prompt instead of roasting in heat for even a few seconds.

    does turning up the volume also crank up the fan speed?

    I believe this has been a feature on GM models with both automatic climate control and bluetooth for a few years. My '12 CTS wagon does it as well as my parents' '14 Impala so it's nothing new from the GM side of things.

    The original Volt did it too.

    ^^^ mfennell is correct. The 2011-2015 Volt has this same feature.
    Don't worry about what other people think. Drive what makes you happy.

    GM has had this for years. My 2007 Saturn Aura had it, and so does my ATS.
