Heater 108

Hi, just wondering if it's just my car (again!) or if I should expect the heater to be pretty weak as it's so economical?
It seems to take ages to warm up and I have to wear gloves in the car all the way to work (I know extra cold at the mo). I don't remember my old (from new 206) being so cold.
I've tried all the different options over the 3 months be had it. It's weak most of the time but every now and again it will suddenly burst in to action and I ge some hot air, mostly though it's a luke warm dream of air Seems to be a trend with my car

I should add that I can't imagine how anyone could buy the soft top! Many of my other issues seem to be settling down but all these little things are making me start to dislike my lovely car. I had my old Peugeot 13 years and loved it. This is my 3rd car from new so I'm not inexperienced in new cars but it has been a while since the last.

Mine takes about 5 mins or so (very rough estimate there) to start blowing warm, but around maybe 15 mins to start blowing really hot. Hope this helps you.

We have a soft top, and live in Scotland so not exactly the warmest part of the world. Our heater is as good as any car we have had. Actually better than most when it comes to defrosting the windscreen on an icy morning.
Yours is obviously faulty so get it checked. Could be an air lock in the cooling system, or even a blown head gasket! Lack of useful heat is a symptom of both of these issues. Could also be the air conditioning control that is faulty. There is definitely something wrong with your car.
Edit. Just checked with the wife again. She does say that the heat is not as intense as in some of our previous cars, but she feels it is due to the positioning of the vents. However, it is good enough, and she is never left feeling cold.

Does take a while, I guess these cars use the heat from the engine? It seems to require the car be either run for a while or run at speed to start generating any real heat.

To update on my previous reply. I was out in my wife's 108 TOP last night. Drove about 80 miles, outside temperature was 5 degrees. After approximately 3 miles the temperature in the car was roasting hot. Had to turn the heater down to about 75% level, or open a window slightly. The heater in this car is better than any other car in our family. We have four Vauxhall vehicles, all are inferior to this in terms of heat output. My Mokka has dual zone climate control, takes forever to get up to a decent temperature, and never gets as hot as the 108.
So I reckon the OP has a problem, and needs the car thoroughly checked.
