How often do you use air conditioning?

I never use my A/C. Ever. I always have the window rolled down, which would probably explain why my cabin becomes so dusty so quickly.

When I have the front defroster on, then turn the car off, the A/C starts automatically when I restart the car. I always forget, then wonder why the hell my car is suddenly going slower than it was.

I use it plenty during the summer season (in spite of the boggy 1st gear starts it causes). I'm a wuss about heat. Put a cabin air filter in there and roll up the windows, use the A/C. The interior stays cleaner for way longer. I was disappointed to find my GTO does not have a cabin air filter... there is a lot of pollen or something floating in the air around here now and the inside of the car is turning yellow. The Focus? Still clean as a whistle.

Use it on the weekends in the summer.

Weekdays I only drive to or from work. I don't use it going to work because I'll just sweat when I walk in the warehouse. I don't use it on the way home because the nights are cool enough.

I don't use mine unless the temp gets over 105, and when it's cold I drive with the windows down and the heater on, wearing a jacket and a beanie.
Yeah, I like the windows down
