2016 MDX SH-AWD Advance/Entertainment

Just bought this and when I turn the heat on floor setting, I don't feel it even after a long time of driving. On other settings, I can feel it. Please help.

Hmm the airflow down there is quite low compared to the face vents. I can also feel via hand and it just creates an ambient cold/warm for my feet rather than feeling an actual blown stream. Wearing shoes probably dulls it further.

You do know that the auto climate control directs the air automatically. Based on need.

Yeah that's true air flow is quite dull there I can feel it with my hands but not with when I am wearing shoes .
Can this be fixed as in other cars I can feel the hot air on my feet with shoes on ..

Yeah there's nothing you can really do aside from modding the duct sizing, but you will increase the CFMs down there and will probably decrease the CFMs up top as a result. They just sized it really small. On shoes with thin materials like these new sock-like shoes, I can feel the air just fine. But yeah, with regular shoes or leather shoes, not really.

I had BMW X5 with a similar issue but after a long ride on foot mode, the inside the car got pretty warm. My MDX, I drove on the highway for an hour with heat on foot mode and it was still cold. I'm not asking for hot air directly to my foot but it should still be warm enough to raise the ambient temp.

i wonder if they expected some of the heat generated in the engine compartment to travel back into the foot-well to keep your feet nice and toasty in the winter. (smh)
