  • Car A/C fix?

    My 2017 Kia Cadenza was having a hard time on bright sunny days getting the cabin cooled, especially when parked in the sun and driving in city traffic. The car is new to me so I don't have past summers to weigh it against. I brought the car into my local shop, we have a good relationship but nothing is free (and that's fair). They called me the next day, said they tested the system and it was blowing normally and reached minimum temp.

    I said thanks, paid them for the oil change and left thinking I may have to sell the car. Since then however we've had several hot bright sunny and humid days here and it is blowing colder then before without a doubt. Short of them topping of the Freon is there something else they could have done that they wouldn't disclose for some reason?

    The cars temp gauge still reads the same as before so I'm sure the electric fan was always working. Any clue? I'm thinking maybe one of the crew added a touch of Freon and didn't tell the boss, what do you all think?

      Does your AC go through a cabin filter?

        Beats me, I assume if there was some sort of "reset" they would have just told me, however if it was 85 sand cloudy the unit kept me cool just fine.

        I assume it does, but they didn't replace the filter or they would have charged me for it, I know this from experience.

          I figured they would have, but sometimes, they will "knock" the dust off.. Or maybe it has a tear in it??? Or like Ole said.. The "max" ac or recycle button..

        There is a recycle/recircle button on the a/c panel.
        It allows to recyle/recircle air from outside or inside the vehicle.
        Usually, outside air warmer, smellier
        Inside air cooler, not as smelly, unless someone farts inside the car.

          OK, no, no recycle option.

                Hmm, I'll have to check it. Thanks, maybe I'm just an idiot!

                          That's funny, when I drive the new spaceships, I mean tractors, I don't know what half the switches do, plus no shift lever!

                        Well the button was set for fresh air, so it had nothing to do with the car all of a sudden being cooler.
