    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?

    A/C compressor went out 33,600 miles and it was out of warranty because it was on the road for 3 yrs, 2 months. Cost for replacement was $1700. Ford Motor Co. agreed to pay $500 since it was only 2 months out of warranty. Since it was obviously a defect, I feel Ford should have recalled the car and corrected the problem at their expense.
