For a day it consistently cooled the cabin in the manner described, if the shade was open, then it would restrict air flow and the air temperature would not be very cold. Now it is working but still not in a manner that I would deem consistent or correct.
I'll just ask the KIA tech about it next time I drop by the dealer. I know the degree to which vehicles are controlled by computers.
This is really weird, even trying to describe the behavior is challenging.
