I always figured that was just how it was and was just a bit of a marginal ac system. After a 90+ day and someone in my car commenting on the mildly cool air without my prompting, I took it in to the dealer
What the dealer found was an under charged A/C system. They evacuated and recharged it with the proper amount and it feels more like an ac should now. I probably should have taken it in long ago for this but I was trying not to be overly particular as the GC had been in for a number of other things. As it has always been this way and never gotten worse in 2.5 years I suspect it was just under filled at the factory vs a leak. So if anyone else notices an AC system in their 2014-2015 GC that is not performing up to the way you expect, it that may not be just the way it is and may be worth a trip to the dealer for a recharge if it were under filled like mine. Mine was a 2014 GC March 2013 build. There was no cost for this and I assume the dealer covered it under the 3/36.
I've thought the same thing since I got mine in 2013.. of course, always forget to mention it when in for service, but wouldn't surprise me. I've had a couple of new vehicles in the past that were under charged from factory. I did have to get blower replaced a month ago because bearings were bad or something and it was driving me nuts.
