Oh, I didn't figure it out myself, Mazda told me. This was how it was designed to work. If you have the time contact Mazda 800-222-5500. You will need your VIN # and complain. If enough people complain then they will consider a voluntary recall to install a newly designed sensor.

The AC in my car has been working ok... Its a 2005 with no auto-climate. It is defintley no the best and I live in the Fort Worth... so it is very hot. And my seats are black so they heat up easily.

I purchased the 2010 Mazda 3 about 6 months ago. I too have been experienced the inaccuracies of the climate control. I've had the temperature sensor changed out once and the new one works worse than the first one. I live in CA and for the past week we have been experiencing temps. of over 100 degrees; the temperature on my display has never read over 70 degrees. As stated above, the temp. will decrease if needed, but will not climb as quickly as it drops. I've called the dealership and complained, their only recommendation is to drop my car off for several days so they can test it themselves, but refuse to provide me with alternate transportation. The dealerships have also been given specific instructions from Mazda to NOT replace the temp. sensor, as this is the way it is suppose to work. I find it hard to believe that you need to drive your car for over an hour in order to get a true temperature reading. I will call Mazda AGAIN and complain, but don't think anything will be resolved.
