Just purchased the S model last week. I've noticed something strange with the Re-Circulated air button, it Times out. I like to use re-circulated air a lot to avoid, bad exhaust, smokers, skunk, etc. But to have it time out after 5 minutes? I'm wondering if this is a malfunction or a design mistake. If it's intentional, it's Ridiculous and stupid. First car ever to own since 1982 that I couldn't keep re-circ air on permanently.
Any one else notice this?

Have you set it on de-fog by any chance? That usually switches it to outside air because fresh air is required to de-fog.

have you thoroughly read your owners manual, as it usually will tell you how the climate system functions and what takes place on various settings and under what conditions some controls will automatically change.

I read a good bit, but honestly I have to go over it again. So far some of my complaints is that I'm not familiar or knew how it operated. I must say that this car has a huge learning curve, so many high tech features.

It’s under the climate settings. It changes from recirculate to outside air after a time. Something about humidity.

I read through the owner's manual. Seems like it is a setting within the A/C controls. It is to limit humidity and reduce risk of drowsiness due to stale air! I'll check the actual settings tomorrow.

Hold down the front defrost button for 3 seconds to turn the ADS (Auto Defogging System) off.
