    Bought car brand new. In 2009, the air conditioner stopped working.
    Had compressor replaced two years ago, in 2012.
    Worked well the first summer (2013), but not as cold as it should have been.
    This summer(2014); not so great. Cools a little sometimes, but very inconsistent.
    Cold air would come and go.
    This summer, cold air is almost nonexistent.
    Frequently during this time, I ovserved other Ford 500 car owners driving in the sweltering heat with windows down meaning they had the same problem. Know two other Ford 500 car owners; we all bought our vehicles in 2005, and all began to experience the problem in 2009. What a cooincidence; right?

  • I have had my ac fixed twice and now dealing with the third time in less then a year. Told the dealership it had to be that it needed a new compressor told them first time it went bad. First they said it was a leaking hose second time they said they did something to compressor but didn't replace it and finally the third time they are saying it needs new compressor. All I can say is I am so glad we got highest warranty instead of $1200 it will be $100 deductible its a 2005

    Serpentine belt broke and damaged air conditioner compressor. Dealer wants to charge $2177 to fix. Seems very unreasonable.
