Inside the last 3,000 miles of the warranty, trying to make sure everything is in top shape before I am on my own for the cost of repairs. I need to take Carrie back for the clanking noise which is as present as ever but now I am thinking about my a/c.
I think when I first got the car I blogged that the a/c seemed under-powered compared to that of the ’02 MCS. That is still very much the case. There are times when I need to put the strength on level 3 or 4 to feel any air coming out of the vents (top down of course) and even then it is not always chilled. The 15 minute drive to El Centro on a Saturday afternoon in the summer heat is almost always unpleasant, last weekend in 90F I didn’t once feel any cold air even after an hour of stop/start driving. Other times, it will start out strong and then after a while it feels like it shuts itself off. I don’t feel any cool air any more.
So, dear reader – do you think this is something I should bring to Brecht’s attention? Is this normal behaviour for the ’05 cabrio ?
