It'll still be a fob off, nobody with these engines has ever reported the heaters not working below 2000rpm. Regardless of the trim level.

Completely agree - would just seem ludicrous.

A faulty engine coolant thermostat (fail open or partially open): most of the heat from the engine goes through main front radiator. Also at low RPM this would indeed cause the engine to loose heat and cool down (of note: to prevent wear, engine temperature should remain CONSTANT,+/- few deg.C's, at all times, following the initial heat-up).


Normally, when there is a request for more heat in the cabin, the engine coolant thermostat should sense the lower loop temperature and should begin to close -> thus directing the heat to the cabin instead of the outside air.
Same at lower RPM, less heat generated, but the thermostat should close, and the remainder of the heat to be directed again to the cabin.


If the thermostat is always open/partially open, this equilibrium does not happen, and the cabin comfort level drops at lower engine load and/or cool weather.
