Ok I do have a major bone to pick.

Now that its getting to be summer time here in good old Texas.

On the AC dial you have to push the button to turn on the air recycle everytime you restart the car, where it is set to take outside air by default, all other cars I have had it has been reversed, where it has recycle on by default and you have to make it get the outside air.

Now I know in the manual it says to not use recycle unless there is an odor, but that AC just does not pump enough cold AC air out unless the recycle button is pushed. I've even let it get cooled off inside, then pressed the button back to get outside air and even with the AC going full blast, it heats up fast :-(

The worst part is its only in the 90's now.. wait till it starts getting up into the 100's /CRY

It is technically in the 100's here with the humidity factored in. My partner was also complaining that the AC doesn't cool off fast enough. We tried it the other day after the car had been sitting in the sun all day, and it did take awhile for it to catch up. After you have been in the sun all day working, all you want is some COLD air, and FAST!!! Typically, on days like today, where I have to make sales calls, AC and recycle is on with the dial up full throttle.

My parent's aren't too happy with its performance either... and they are older in age... so heat really does have a toll on them. Might take it by the dealer have them check the A/C charge. Sometimes they mess up and put in too little R-134. But can't hurt to check... better be safe than sorry. :wink:

You get in either one of my trucks and it's like an instant blast chiller (sometimes even way too cold for myself!). :lol:
