Yeah there are two places to look at your heat settings, the digital one that controls ambient cockpit temperature and the analog dial in the center vent that controls the 4 vents near face level. I've always found it a bit tricky getting the car at a comfortable temperature, always a bit too warm or too cold!

Mine was like that earlier, check your temp guage, if it is stuck or barely moves then 100% it is your thermostat that needs changing. I took mine to the stealer and got a decent price for the repair. the thermostat came as a whole piece witht he housing and everything installed/coolant top up came to 300 bucks.....now I am nice and warm in the car :D :D :D :D :D

I took it to a mechanic and topped up the coolant and it was fixed. He said something was loose in the engine and it leaked out some coolant.

Or you could be a dork like me and not know about the dial in the middle vents. They were on the "blue dots" and I was complaining about lack of heat... turned it to the "red dots" and voila heat!

The Dork.
