When it's hot out my air conditioner only works when my car is moving, if I'm stopped at a light or sign the cold air goes away.

air conditioner does not blow cold air, when temp is above the 70 and it does blows cooler air on the driver's side and none nowhere in the car, and it does blows cooler air on the driver's side and none nowhere in the car, it actually blows hot air on the passenger side and none in the back, I have had the value replaced twice in the compressor and it only last for maybe 2 summers each time. my question is that ford knows about this problem and has known since the car was purchased, and the failed to inform me of this problem, at the time of purchase.

My solution is that Ford should issue a recall on this car due to this problem. It is very uncomfortable riding in the heat and this could cause someone to have an accident.

the exact same issue as everyone is stating- 1500.00 to fix

Same exact problem not blowing cold if temp is over 70 outside. Blows hot on passenger side. can't afford to get fixed.

Same problem as described above - only blows cool on driver side when moving. Warm air throughout when stopped

Ford said my A/C was shot and wanted $1,900 to fix it.
