With my wife it's the opposite. 'No a/c, no me.' My car generates plenty of heat, but I tore the whole system out, from the knob to the the heater boxes, and rebuilt/replaced/refurbished them - cables, linkages, and hinges and flaps in the boxes. But she just doesn't like the shall we call it 'compact' dimensions of the car and the feeling of being in a sardine can. Me, I love it.
