Blowing hot air

There are times when the weather is a little too cool for A/C, and I just want some cool outside air to flow from the upper vents. When I turn the temp knob to the cool side and set the other control to blow from the upper vents, I get warm air, no matter what the outside temp is. I've even tried running the A/C for a while to cool the ducting down, but when I turn the A/C off, in a few minutes I get warm air from the vents again. Just wondered if this might be something simple to fix, or should I bite the bullet and take it to the stealership.

All of these cars do that. Call it a design flaw. A real annoying one too.

try pushing the recirc button and see if that helps you any. ive found it helps with the hot air that naturally comes through even when the blower is off

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give that a try. I also noticed that the A/C doesn't seem to be as cold as it should be. Makes sense since it's having to compete with the warm air that's always circulating in the ducting.
Seems like something like this should be a no brainer for an auto engineer. Let's see, we'll run the A/C ducts close to a hot engine, that shouldn't be a problem. Maybe they hired the guy from Toyota.

I think the A/C is working OK because if I turn it on when the engine is cold, it blows plenty of cold air, and then gradually gets warmer, as the engine warms up.

Does anyone know if there was a TSB issued for this problem?
