Default A/C Cold enough


My wifes 2003 Saturn Vue just had its air conditioning repaired. We live in Sacrameto which has been experiencing a heat wave (for us) with temps between 100 and 109. And it sits in the sun all day while she is at work. The AC blows cool but not cold. Is this normal or should I return it to the repair shop. Thanks

Do you think it's normal?

Thanks.

I do not know nor do I have anything to compare it to. I cannot find any information on the internet.

Take it back to the shop that did the repair work and express your concerns to them. Realize to that there is only so much the system can do in extreme temperatures. At 100 degrees F plus you will not get an instantly cold car interior.
At full cold max AC recirculate you should be able to eventually get 40-45 out of the vents but 100 degrees could strain the system so that you don't get that.

You may be able to service the compressor and replace the scroll valve. I had a similar problem and this fixed it. The procedure can be done in less than 30 minutes and the compressor doesn't need to come off the car. The valve costs about $30.
