Hey all, I've run into an issue in the past few days with my 2013 Limited. With the AC on and the dial set all the way to the left for cold air, my car with produce moderately cool air at best. With the fan on it's highest setting, its only a more intense blow of lukewarm air. I had my 60K mile service recently, and I figured they might have noticed something? I remember the AC not being super cold during hot Georgia summers as well. Does my car require a recharge or refrigerant? I would love to get this fixed as soon as possible. Thanks everyone - Christian

Did you mention this at the service? Sounds to me like it needs a recharge, unless it happened suddenly...

I did not, hadn't reminded myself of the issue as it's now much colder here in Atlanta than those hot summer days. It seems to me it has been a process and thinking recharge will be the way to go

I went on a road trip this summer and when I arrived in bishop, ca my AC was blowing hot air and it was over 100 degrees. on the way home through the central valley it was 102. what a miserable trip.

I had my AC recharged when I got home and its been fine since. still don't understand what happened.

Whew, erader. I just bought some A/C Pro, looking forward to fixing it myself and having cool air again. Yours sounds like one sweaty ride

I had my front two windows tinted to 35% today (Suntek CXP), looking forward to seeing how those black summertime heat as well

dude it was bad. many of the places I went on that trip was offroad and I couldn't roll my windows down because of the dust. you know my home AC did the same thing about five years ago but I had it recharged and it's worked ever since. I don't understand that one either

I had the same thing happen. The evaporator valve (I think that what was replaced, I will have to check) was leaking, so I had to get a new one. The part number changed, which tells me they must have redesigned it. The system was recharged. However, the drivers side still blows hotter than the passenger side. Not sure what is going on. I don't have dual zone climate controls.
