Now that the weather is warming, when I have the cabin temperature set in Auto for 70 °F, when it is 85 °F outside, the A/C does not seem to come on unless I push the A/C button. I can lower it to 60°F and still no affect. I am wondering if I have a problem with the vehicle or if this is normal operation?

Appreciate anyone's comments,
On my 2018 l find that the heating doesn't seem overly effective unless l manually set the circulation setting to recurculate.
This is the first summer for me with the car, and l have found that l have to do the same for conditioning.

So far, l have been using the windows and sun roof for interior temperature control as the heating and A/C both chew up the battery reserve pretty quickly.
