Have an 08 SE with 45000km and the A/C is ok. On a hot day with the fan on 3 it is cool, but by no means cold. If on 2 the system can't keep up and the interior starts to heat up. Compared to the girlfriends 01 cavalier, hers is like walking into a freezer and mine is like walking into shade. This happened last year, took it to dealer and they found hi pressure fitting o-ring was leaking. It still dose not work very well if it gets hot out. I have always heard Ford A/C systems are marginal at best. My 93 Escort GT was similar, but after 12 years didn't matter to much. How dose everyone else's A/C work? I am going to take it back later this summer and have it checked again, and I am going to get into a 2010 Focus and see it it is better.
