I would love to talk to you or anyone else that has had this problem. We bought my daughter a TC in May '06 and the condenser developed a small hole from a pebble. She took to a dealer and they repaired on a "goodwill" repair. Now we have the same problem again, so even after you get it fixed, it can happen again. I have called Scion headquarters and they denied the second fix and told me that they would not take my calls anymore.
I have found out in the last 2 days that Toyota has had the same problem with Corolla's and they will install a mesh covering under the condenser to protect it from road debris. I'm not super crazy about spending $800 for a repair that might happen over again and having Scion say tough luck.
But what I wonder is how many of us are out there. If this happens in 3% of the cars they will do a fix.

As a host, I see this problem occurring with a wide variety of cars. I just read one on a Nissan Murano yesterday.

#592 of 599 Air coming out of Vents
Oct 06, 2006 (11:23 am)
New 07 TC owner here. Love the car so far but found one nuiance. I find that even with the A/C or Heat is off when I'm on the hwy a tremendous amount of air comes out of the vents. Is there a way to stop this?

I posted on Murano in reply to several instances of this happening to our models..basically, debris from cars in front of you...pebble, nail... hits the thin A/C grille which by necessity is exposed to frontal airflow. ANY auto can have this, just as that same missle could break your windshield. I purchased a segment of aluminum grille/grid used for keeping leaves out of gutters, cut it to slip into the grille opening, and it sits, without any screws or support in front of the A/C. Simple, effective and prevents the 1:1000 hit that can occur, without blocking air flow. John B from Murano Problems and Fixes

Hi, my name is Chris and I am writing you to see if you got your problem fixed on the tC. I just bought the 07 tC and I have the same problems. What did you do to fix it or did you get it fixed. Please email me back asap so that I may find out whether I need to take it in for service. Thank you.
