I have a 04 Z with 9000 miles. While the AC seems to work fine, but I just dont think it works that great compare to my 98 Celica. Do you guys notice a weak AC system also or are the new cars like that now? The 98 has R134a, not R12. Is there anyway to improve the efficiency? I checked the air that comes out, it was still blowing 48-50 degree. What do you guys think? I gotta check the Celica and see what it is blowing

There have been some reports of compressor issues, but I don't recall specific details. The A/C in mine works very , very well. Might have a freon leak...I'd visit the dealership as this should be an easy condidtion to duplicate for them.

48 degree is respectable, but it just seems the AC is weak and it doesnt work as well as i think it should

i think what helps is that the space inside the car is not so big so it cools pretty quick

I've always thought mine was weak too. I guess it's time to visit the dealer.

I always think mine is weak but then again, I do live in Las Vegas. 100+ every day, takes my entire ride to work to be ice cold, lol.

I checked the Celica vs the Z. The Z was putting out 48-50 vs 46-50 on the Celica. 48-50 doesnt sound bad, but i just want to make sure it is in specification

Mine too takes a while to get cold. I think Toyota makes better AC systems. All my previous toys blow ice cold farily quick.

I have no problems with mine. It works well enough for me, and I live in a hot and humid area. Of course, I'm kind of a freak (no comments!) about hot weather and would rather drive with the windows down when it's 100º outside.

I'm with ya on that one Smooth. I turn on the A/C about twice a year to get it some use (aside from when I turn on the defroster)

ditto. Windows down is the way to go.

Mine works fine here in Texas.
Usually cools down in a few minutes.
On the hot days, the GF and I ride with the top down and the AC on.
Do any of you other roadster guys do that?

HAHA! I can't remember the last time I drove the Z with the windows down. It's too hot here in FL to drive without the A/C on.

Mine works fine, too, but I usually drive with the fan on the lowest setting and the temp at 70 degrees in the summer.
