Sometimes I will drive a short distance and I get plenty of heat . Other times I drive 20 min. or more and I don't seem to get much heat. I have tried to monitor when weather conditions are similar.

Coolant level is low. Thermostat is old. Tend to both these items, and report!

Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately my car doesn't have a temperature gauge. The blue light goes off when the engine warms up.

at the very least, open the hood and fill the coolant half full with the green stuff, things may improve if the coolant level is correct. This could be done when you gas up and clean the windows~

if you have a 2012 civic bring it in to your dealer it fully warrantied . I don't think its a coolant problem.

If you's gots no heat, sadly it IS a coolant problem.
