    When I set the air flow to just be down at my feet I get almost nothing emitted from the foot well area. Almost all the air flow is directed to the rear passengers via their vent. If I close theirs I hear a lot of back pressure and whistling like the air can't escape. Should I get this checked? I run the fan at high.

    Also when I direct air to the face and also front windscreen together I get minimal air to the face
    I have to just have the face only to get much air flow.

    What do others experience?

    Does the ZB have a cabin filter? And what about a pollen filter?

    Not familiar with ZB but something sounds wrong. Setting dial to feet should blow air at front driver and passengers feet (and maybe rear passengers feet from under the seat), not out the rear console? air vents.

    Closing the rear air vents in this setting only to hear whistling means something that should be open is not... For piece of mind, read the owners manual as it should describe where air blows out in various settings, then get it looked at as the car is still under warranty (both statutory and manufacturers warranty).

    PS: filters would have nothing to do with where air comes out of.

    Cabin filter/ pollen filter are the one thing?

    Could the evaporator be icing up?

    It’s a ZB.
    I believe all sales beginning 2018 came with with 7 year warranty. So answer must be yes.

    Yes under warranty. 3 years and expires Nay 2021. Adding this to my list of things to be rectified. Can live without it at the moment.

    The Opel Insignia forum in the UK is full of "Praise" (Not praise) for this car. Even the UK Insignia lovers are wondering what the F GM has given them.
