Air coming from the vent inside the car with no air turned on.

Just slightly, but noticeable. Anyone else notice this? The vents on the dash seem to be blowing typically warm air in even with the air settings turned off.

If it's while driving then it's normal (at least in every car I've driven). The vents from the outside air do not close just because the ventilation fans are off so inevitably some air is going to make it inside the car. That is if I remember correctly, and if not someone will correct me

If no air enters the vehicle, you will die. All cars are designed like that. If you don't like it on the dash, turn the floor vent on (more commonly used for the heater). And make sure the temperature is on cold, even if the vent is in the off position.

Make sure that your fans are off and the circulation button is on. I dont have this car but on my scion tc if i have the fans off and the circulation button (an arrow doing a circle in the middle of a car) is on no air will come out. But if both are off then the hot air from the engine will sneak in.

Your kidding on this one right "YOU WILL DIE"?
There are two modes for AIR CIRCULATION in the car (MOST IF NOT ALL). One mode is where OUTSIDE AIR is brought in. This mode you would use when you don't have the A/C on. Air will come into the car when the "Recirculate" button is off, even if the fans are off.

The other Mode where the INSIDE AIR is recirculated, you would use this mode when the A/C is ON. The reason for this, is that you want the A/C to remove the moisture from the air in the car, helping cool the air down. If you use the "RECICULATION" mode in the car w/o the A/C on, your windows will fog up becuase there will be much humidity in the car.

Funny that you mentioned that. Yesterday I took my camaro out so it could stretch itís tires from a long winter nap and noticed air coming from the vents. I jumped the gun and started arguing with my sons about the no touchy rules on my Camaro. I checked all the knobs to make sure and they all were off. 15 minutes later the air stopped and didnít do that all day. At the end of the day I felt kind of sh-tty and took my boys for a pizza. Yes, they had a ride in the Camaro.

There's always air flowing through the interior. Cars' hvac systems have been like that for decades.

Even in recirculation mode the HVAC system will still bring in some fresh air and mix it with the cabin air. There is a minumum amount of fresh air that is required at all times. Every car is designed to pump in enough fresh air so that when the cabin is filled, CO2 levels will stay below a certain level.

Even if they did not have the safeguards i doubt you would die but then again you would get very tired.

Turn re-cerc on and it'll stop. I will say it's not nearly as bad as my Civic was.
