Question
Dear ZZ

Can there be applications of implementing PID temperature controllers in Automobiles?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Don't know about PID controller but nearly all luxury level cars have automatic temperature control of heater and air cooling systems.  Similar to the explanation below:

The system above is less sophisticated than a PID; it is more just a sensing system that controls air valve of heating and cooling system.

But, it certainly could be fashioned into a PID type solution.  Maybe cost is too high an thereby prevents the auto industry from using PID.
