AC Not Blowing Cold 58K 2014 Titanium

Anyone else experience AC failure this early? Dealer flushed and recharged the system and added diagnostic dye in case of another failure they will run a black light over it to check for small leaks as they couldn't find any at present.I was never impressed with the systems performance when new,it was working, but on a hot day took several mins to cool and was never 'too cold' above 90F,acceptable,not impressive...

The first step in the evaluation/diagnosis of the performance of any AC system is an accurate thermometer* to check vent outlet temperatures - just putting your hand in front of the vent is too subjective. You want to see what the outlet temps are across a range of conditions - outside air temp/humidity, fan speed, recirc on/off, vehicle in motion or not, etc. Ultimately any good shop should be looking at those temps in addition to using a manifold set to look at the system lo and hi pressures - this is the only way to properly and thoroughly evaluate an AC system.

*I like the UEi T220/3 but there are plenty of others on the market (although I would avoid those 1" dial ones they sell at Autozone, Harbor Freight, etc). I have one in each of my Focuses that I leave in the center vent all the time so I can check/evaluate both AC (summer) and heater (winter) performance.

Good luck
