Long ago, pre diabetes, I got into the habit of drinking water in the car all the time, and I was a lot in my non A/C car. The more I drank, the thirstier I got. When your body expects to get fluids it lets them go, creating more thirst. Wonder if you tried to drink enough fluids for a couple of weeks so that your urine was pale - then see if it changes your thirst?I know I'm probably dehydrated most of the time since, as ColaJim pointed out, my urine is darker than normal but I just can't drink something when I don't ever feel thirsty.
If you have trouble drinking enough, I can recommend moving to a warmer climate and getting into a closed-up car with no A/C - you'll reach for that water in a hurry!
