With the fan on auto and AC set to the lowest temp, when going up hill or accelerating, the fan turns off and warm air seeps out. Then, 5 - 10 seconds later, the fan comes on and cooler air starts blowing again. However, it seems to me the cool air is always mixed with warm air and is therefore never that cool. This goes on over and

My thinking is that the fan should be thermostat controlled, coming on when needed.
