Heating...

Hi everyone. I have read here that the climate control is/can be an issue in the newer F150s. My '08 seems to be either on or off...really hot or very cool. It's a real pain...hard to stay comfortable. Should I take it in to Ford for a look-see or will they give me a run-around?

Do you have the auto or man system? My auto system on my '08 works fine. Maybe a call to your dealer might help, it's under warranty so you shouldn't get the run around.

Thanks. It's a manual setting. I'll give the dealer a shout after the holidays. Merry Christmas all!
