It is not that it takes a long time to turn down/off. Rather it is the fact that continuing to press the down button eventually results in it coming back on. Thus you cannot do this without looking down which is just bad interface design.
This used to annoy me without my noticing. Ever since a friend pointed it out overtly I cannot turn my climate control off without thinking about how stupid this design is.
you people need help. The Climate control is fine. I have never had trouble with it. Why have an off button it is there to maintain a set temp so it will go on and off to keep it there. You want and on off button order the car without autmatic climate control or just deal with it.
Name one car with a climate control system that doesn't have a simple off button. You can defend the design all you want, but it makes no sense not to have the ability to turn the system off without having to take your eyes off the road for any longer than it takes to hit the button once.
