ingraham72b Posted November 11, 2019 Share Posted November 11, 2019 (edited) I purchased a new 2019 Legacy Premium this past July, and have been very happy with it so far. Now that it is getting cold outside, I am noticing the car takes a while to get up to normal operating temperature. By that I mean the gauge usually runs exactly half way between cold and hot. It takes about 15 - 20 mins of in-town driving to get it fully warmed up. Is this normal? The other thing that I have noticed is that I start getting warm air out of the heating system very quickly, like in about 90 seconds of driving. The gauge hasn't moved yet, but I definitely feel warm air. Could I have a thermostat that is stuck open? I talked to the dealer about this issue, and their response was that if there was an issue with the car not warming up fast enough then the computer system would display a warning code. I have mostly driven Hondas over the last 25 years, and am used to little to no heat until the car warms up and the thermostat opens, which was usually about 5 mins or so of driving.
