    A/C not cooperating

    So this Saturday I got my oil changed at the dealership in Cherry Hill. Now tonight I just noticed me A/C no longer blows cold air! If the temperature is set below 65 that's when I get some cold air but not very strong. I'll take it into the dealership of course but has anyone experienced anything similar

    Since your car is a 2011 the only reason it should do that is a leak in the AC system causing you to lose the fluid.

    Scott, that's what I figured too. It too new of a car to be having A/C issues. I emailed the service manager at Cherry Hill about the issue tonight and hope to get the car back in again when I have time and after this storm. For the mean time, is there something I should look for under the hood? Can I check if there is a leak without having to raise the car up?

    Finally reserved a Saturday slot at the dealership. Going in bright and early at 8am this Saturday to get my A/C checked. I expect they'll just put some some dye in with the fluids to check for a leak and go from there. I hope its a simple fix where it's just something loose and not a hole in the condenser.

    I'll update as I go.

    No dye applied. It was diagnosed as low from the factory. So far it seems fine so fingers crossed. Apparently its very common but its the first time I've experienced it in such a new car so who knows. The true test is this summer and how it holds.
