    Is there any way to get more flow out of the vents? It feels pretty weak compared to other cars

    I’ve never thought that the fan speed was weak in this car. 61,000 miles on an LX and 12,000 miles on my Si. Maybe your blower is defective?

    Maybe a less restrictive cabin air filter would help. Or just check your current one to make sure it's clean.

    I noticed its specifically the one in the middle of the dash just to the right of the dash. Is there a way to check for a clog?
