Does anyone else's noticed this with the air recirculation with it switching itself off after about 30 minutes of continuous use?? Sat in the traffic (attempting to get across the M25) and had both the A/C on (switching it off periodically) and the Recirculation Button pushed on. All of a sudden the Recirc switched itself off. Pressed it back on again but just wondered if that was normal (ie it says in the Owners Manual (haven't actually looked it up!)) or if it was something amiss and need looking into?
I wasn't using any driving modes.
Any thoughts or am I just being dim??

TIA

Rich

No, it's normal operation.
If it did not do this you would end up with very stale air & possible C02 poisoning.

Better to leave A/C on & adjust temperature to suit.
Ah that makes sense as to why it switches off.... it is a "Clean Air System" as stated in the dash. 馃憤馃憤馃槉馃槉
