Our 2007 Freestyle has had the same issue. This is a vehicle-specific issue. There are several known issues with this family of vehicles & A/C systems. For our problem - no cold air at idle - the most common problem is a clogged SCROLL COMPRESSOR CONTROL VALVE. They can be purchased at 'techchoiceparts' for about $40. Labor/evacuation/recharging may run another $150-200, but definitely necessary. I think we may have waited a little too long, and may still have to replace the compressor. My Ford shop quoted $1300 to replace the compressor, claiming a leaking seal! Here's the deal. The valve can be easily replaced. It is easily accessible from the outside back of the compressor itself. This valve allows the compressor to function as a variable compressor. A quick fix that may save you many hundreds, as well as a happy spouse!!! Another common issue is a faulty blend door motor/actuator inside the vehicle. May cause hot or cold on one side or the other. Could also be due to a poor electrical connection.

Replaced entire A/C unit. There is a door open under dash allowing hot exhaust air to come in and compete with the cold air. Rear air works fine.
I had the AC off while I was driving and all of a sudden it came on and started blowing on high. I tried to turn it off but that only switched it to the defroster. I also tried to turn down the fan...
