I bought the car new here in South Florida. No noise from the blower motor. Never been replaced. Car is essentially stock. Air seems to mosey out of the outlets with blower on high. I think it was always like this, but maybe it has slowly degraded over the years and I have just gotten used to it. Keeps the car kinda cool in August, but it aint great. Window leaks don't help, but still... Is it supposed to be kinda lame?
