For me it does not work either.
It seems to have its own will and it gets worse, if I go for Sport mode... in that case, temperature rises by about 8-10'C
... and I have to go for the lowest possible temperature to get it to a normal state ... after some minutes.

In the meantime, I open the window to breath... Which is odd, while raining.

Seems, that we have to cope with it.

I use mine in "auto mode" everyday without any issues. Stefan, you may want to have your dealer look at the air conditioning controller. I had the same heat issue in sport mode when I first got my Karma. They replaced it and my car has been fine ever since.

@Stefan: There are two versions of the climate control (HVAC) unit. The earlier version was not programmable, the newer ones are. You need to have the dealer upgrade that unit. With the new unit and version 628 software, you should not get the Hot Air in Sport Mode problem.

I'm not sure what you mean by progamable, could you explain? I don't have problems with the HVAC, but I also don't think I've programed or had the ability to program the HVAC.

Sorry for any confusion. Programmable is not exactly right. As I understand it, the newer HVAC systems' software can be upgraded by the dealer whereas the older units did not have this ability. There is no visible difference to the driver but the upgradeable units can receive software bug fixes for issues like the hot air during ICE operation issue. They also work better in providing heat in Stealth mode when the ICE coolant is not warm enough to provide the heat.

I'm not entirely sure how the fan speed works. I know when it's 98 degrees out (as it was in Zion National Park) and I use "auto" to get cooling, the fans come on very high and ease up as the cabin gets cooler, but I haven't used heating enough to observe a pattern yet.

I gave up on auto and just set the temp and then control the fan manually. Also, at times my air will heat up when I switch to sport, it is the air conditioning compressor going off. All I do is turn the climate control off and then back on and it works fine in sport mode. I did have my AC controller changed out for an unrelated problem and that seems to have taken care of that problem too. They told me that over time everyone's AC controllers would be swapped out. The originals could not be reprogramed with software updates and the new ones can be.
