This is my first winter with my NV-200. I notice that the drivers side footwell has insufficient heat. I have the air selection set to hot, deflection is set to footwell and supply is set to interior re-circulation. Is this a common problem or should I bring it back to the dealer?

These vans are not designed well. It’s normal. It took a 45 minute highway drive for my heater to warm up. I have a 2015. It was blowing Luke warm air the whole time.

Well at least I'm not the only one. I think the passenger side is getting all the heat. Nice for the passenger, sucks for the driver. :(

I have a 2015 also and although I'm in Florida, I've noticed that the heater is substandard. Not too big a deal for me due to location but I would think it would be very noticeable in those cold northern regions. With temps between 25-30 it takes a good bit of driving to warm up. I've found that keeping the fan speed low seems to help build up the heat quicker.

my feet are cold too!

Temps have been below freezing here in Seattle for about a week. I have noticed the same issue with a very cold drivers side footwell. . i have a small 12 volt heating pad the tI use to heat the dogs seat . its now heating my footwell. Her side seems to be warmer anyway. I have found that the entire van warms up faster and warmer (including the footwell! ) when I set the blower on the body or defrost . my passenger footwell is usually full of gear since I have zero extra space /storage in the cockpit.

I use the fresh or a mixed setting usually since I have 6-8 wet dogs in the van. but switching to recirculate does not seem to warm it up any better. I am thinking its a combo of the blower and poor insulation. Im considering putting some reflectix under the floor mat and see if it helps are all but I think its also the sidewalls of the footwell that are cold. this is my first cargo van . I have used stripped out Siennas previously. I am still adapting to the noise and temperature control issues. .

Hello, my van came with cage behind me. I bought a moving blanket and spread it creating a barrier with cargo space. Heat works well now.
