restraint system has a longer warranty than the 3yr/36000 mile warranty. yours may be out on time. check with dealer on the warranty for the restraints.
Question Answered: air conditioner quit blowing cold air.

if it quit suddenly, it may have blown a hose, seal or compressor gone out. need to know if it has freon in system before trying to charge. if it does, no way to know how much without being evacuated. need to take to a shop, have them inspect a/c system.

get engine warm, turn a/c on. at idle, fan should be turning pretty fast and should feel air above engine being pulled through radiator. if slow or not much air felt, probably fan clutch.

Car Review: 2009 Hyundai Accent
August 01, 2013, 08:03 PM
Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.
Car Review: 2000 Ford Expedition
August 01, 2013, 07:56 PM
Bought this Eddie Bauer Expedition in June. Had 78k miles on it. Was a trade in with a bad engine knock. Pulled oil pan, #8 rod bearing bad, crankshaft ok. Put it together, have put about 3k miles on it since repair. Drives good. Has 4x4 and air suspension. Not great on gas milage but try not to drive a lot. Great to pull with. Looking for third row seat as it was gone.
