1) You are driving a 3 cylinder car! It will never have the acceleration snap of a V8, or even a 4 cylinder car. If your 30 cars, were any of them a 3 cylinder car with A/C? most cars with even 4 cylinders don't usually offer A/C. In the end, it isn't fair to compare the performance to any other car unless it has the same wheelbase, weight, aerodynamics, engine, transmission , etc.

2) the temp slider and the fan switch are rotary switches made of plastic. I have had both of mine break off, and I was able to super glue them back together so they would work. Again, not a high cost car here. The detents are just plastic and they do wear after time. You can purchase a replacement heater control assembly for about $350 and get that feel of a brand new setup.
