Title: Vehicular air conditioner with passenger-operated inside/outside air double flow mode

Abstract: A vehicle air conditioner has a blower unit having first and second inside/outside air switching doors, and an air conditioning unit having defroster and foot openings. The first inside/outside air switching door is operated to correspond to a set position of an inside/outside air switching lever. The second inside/outside air switching door is operated with an operation of an air outlet mode switching lever. When an air outlet mode in which air is blown from both the foot and defroster openings is set, the second inside/outside air switching door is set to an inside air mode position. Therefore, when the first inside/outside air switching door is set to an outside air mode position in this air outlet mode, only an inside/outside air double flow mode is set. As a result, a gap between a temperature of air blown from the defroster opening and a temperature of air blown from the foot opening is prevented from abruptly changing.
