New Giulia owner here, (former Alfetta owner)

I have looked everywhere in the manual for info about the recirculating air button. It has three settings, one off and two on. What is the difference between the two on settings? Thanks for any info!

It can be turned off completely (only outside air), automatically recirculate (as needed based on desired temperature), or on all the time.

I like the last setting, no smelly outside air that way.

Page 51 of the 2017 owners manual

1) LED on above "A" = automatic mode

2) LED on above the sideways "U" icon = recirc inside air on continuously.

3) Both LEDs off = recirc always off

As others have said, if windows are fogging turn recirculation off.

Don't you have the air quality option? Does recirc even have the "auto" setting without that option?

I find that there is too much humidity in the high desert (current conditions are 31% with a dew point of 0F/-18C) to use recirc. Too much condensation on the windshield. Where you at that it is dryer?

I only use recirc when there is smoke from a fire or some out-of-tune big rig, both of which seem to be frequent occurrences these days.

I am in Florida, very high humidity. However, I have never had an issue of window fogging with the AC on full time recirculate.

I always smell exhaust from cars in front of me with the recirculate off.

Air quality is only included in the Lusso package and is a continuation of the standard HVAC. The air quality sensor will pick up impurities in the air and turn on the recir feature. The standard system has the ability to automatically turn on recir, but that is only using a humidity sensor. The air quality package would add a particulate sensor on top of the humidity sensor.

The System is also included in Ti models with the Leather Package.

Yes, thanks. Actually I may be wrong about lusso, or it is included in lusso because that comes with leather dash as well.
Yes, Standard with the Lusso package and comes with the Leather Package Option on the other Ti models.
