I checked the temperature of the A/C coming out of the center vent (set to coldest temp) and the coldest it reads is 48 degrees F. And this is on an 80 degree day. I would think on a 100 degree day, the A/C performance would be really weak. Has anyone or could someone check the temp coming out of the center vents and let me know the temp reading that you get? Thanks

Maybe mine is working ok, but I know the 2012 WK2 A/C performed better.

I always thought mine was kind of weak. As I said in my post earlier today, the A/C just completely died and the dealer replaced the HVAC control panel...and the A/C is great. Very strong, stronger than its ever been.

So, take it in...
I was hoping some others would take the time and get a temp reading from the vents. I will probably mention it to the dealer when he gets around to checking out why the keyfob liftgate button requires 4 clicks to operate and also to install the ASCM, but I bet they will say the A/C is performing as designed.

Mine has 300 miles and doesnt' get near as cold as my 98 does.. i don't have a way to measure it though sorry.. it actually feels like my other one does if it gets a little low on refrigerant.
Just can't believe its not as cold as the 2012 was. Low on refrigerant is probably the reason. Guess Jeep holds back the last 1-2 ounces of refrigerant per vehicle and that way at the end of the day (1200 vehicles), they get to keep 150 pounds or so. Must add up at the end of the year.

No doubt that's Sergio's logic. :mad:

I notice it weak at times. Today in NJ it was 94 and at startup through the first 2 miles - it was weak. After a bit - it was passable - certainly not meat locker here. I notice two things - fan speed is less than I'm used to (on highest recirc) - and temp is higher than what I'm used to. I just got out of a 2010 MDX and it was never suspect. I also have an infiniti FX and it was never suspect either. When I take it in for its oil change - ill have the dealer check the refrigerant levels and system...
Good luck. I'm sure the dealer will say the usual first or second reply that they learn in auto mechanic academy 101. "It's working as designed" or "They all do that". :mad:
