Actually all the impala's do that but for good reason. The full explanation is in the owners manual but the basic reason for this is by bringing air in from the outside (aslo lowering your windows for a minute or two at the same time) the inside temperature will lower faster. The air conditioner takes a little while to cool off and by brining cool air in while driving and then circulating that air the temperature will lower faster. I gave it a try just to be sure I wasn't crazy. I have a hand held thermometer and checked to temperature with and without using outside air first and it cooled off much faster by, bringing in outside air, lowering the windows for 2 minute to get the hot air out, and then circulately. I live in florida by the beach so I think that says a lot
