I can't figure this one out. It's Iowa. It's winter. I have my heat on "hi" and I pull up next to a car with a smoker. I hit my recirculation button, and the A/C automatically comes on every time. Is this normal for a 2018 Forester? Thank you!

I believe that is intentional. It is to control moisture level in the air. While the A/C indicator light is lit the unit will not operate below a mimium air temperature.I cannot recall what that is.The climate control section of the manual was a little confusing to me.It does not help that the controls and the indicators are some distance apart.cheers Doug

That is a safety feature. The A/C comes on to dehumidify the air which prevents your windows from fogging up when recirculating the air.
