Default my AC sucks...

I havn't used air conditioning for about a month and on full blast I got very little cold air...just alot of almost cold air pushing on me...I know my AC works because in Gorgia I used it alot while sitting in traffic. But then I moved back to chicago and didn't use it at all becuase it was...well snowing still. Now that it is warmer out..I would like to use the AC but I get nothing. Anyone have Ideas? places to check?

I think you have to push the A/C button or else you're justing blowing vent. At least that's how it is on the older model year controls.

isn't your car still under warranty?

...that would be my first step.

sitting and idling with the a/c on for long periods is very BAD for the system. my aunt had to have her entire a/c system replaced on her VW cabrio at about 30,000 miles, because she sits for inordinate periods of time idling with the a/c on full blast. all of the mineral oil that lubricates the compressor leaked out, and no lubrication = eventual catastrophic metal on metal contact.
