Dual Zone Climate Control A/C Problems in Toyota: Why We See this Common A/C Service Need

inland-auto-murrieta-toyota-air-conditioner-repairOne of the common problems we see is drivers who have issues with dual zone climate control.  Climate zone issues, which are found in all vehicles, including Toyota cars and trucks, is a common reason customers see us for auto air conditioning repair in Murrieta.

Typically, the problems we spot during A/C service have to do with a dual zone climate control where one side blows warmer than the other, even though they are set at the same temperature.
