Where in the cabin is the intake for the recirculated air (Max A/C)?

So it's sucking air in through the defrost vents?

No it is not sucking from the defrosters but from under the dash.

What's the issue?

Nothing's wrong. I just wanted to know where it's sucking in air because my friend likes to wear flip-flops and I didn't want it to suck in any feet odors on longer trips with Max A/C on.

coneynew has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Something about this thread is making me laugh ....

I know on my other car, there is a button for recirculated air and non-recirculated air w/ or w/o the A/C on. The Taurus does not have this, so is that what the MAX A/C setting does automatically?

Yes. Max A/C recirculates the air, Regular A/C (Or Auto on the EATC) uses non-recirculated air

Yeah my Aunt's Pt cruiser has a separate button for recirculated air too. It would come in handy driving through tacoma.
