Default Cold Air anyone?

I'm now on 1500 miles on my new truck and starting to nick-pick issues.

The first was the Alpine stereo system seriously lacking good sound, so I'm in the process of upgrading it. New speakers, sub, amps.

But now with temperatures hitting 100 degrees, I'm finding that the AC doesn't get very cold. I'm curious if anyone else feels the same way. My wife's 04' Murano still blows cold air and we have never had the AC serviced.

I've found my stock stereo (non alpine) to be adequate....certainly not as good as previous aftermarket ones I've had, but plenty enough without blowing my ear drums out...and I have very poor hearing, when my wife is with me she's constantly turning it down...My truck has about 45,000 miles on it and it is 100 deg here in central Florida and my air blows plenty cold enough also...

ya i found mine a little lacking too
couple of weeks back it got pretty toasty (nowhere near 100) and i got stuck waiting for some folks to show up...truck running, ac cranked and it never got nearly as cold as other vehicles i've owned
i thought okay maybe it's just a dodge thing, but after hearing the results of others using it me thinx its something to get checked out

My AC blows out FREEZING cold air!! My girlfriend is pregnant and is always hot so when she is with me I always wish I had a jacket or something on! If it stops blowing cold like that I will take it in to get it checked out asap! Its the coldest AC I have ever felt in any car I have been in..

I guess I'm not very picky about my sound system. I would rather spend money on performance mods. My truck has 5,500 and when I set the AC to Low its Ice Cold.

My truck has around 5300. I never have to put my temp on the coldest setting. It blows very cold air sitting or driving.

My AC blows a strong cold air without being on the max cold. Here in Texas are 100+ every day but my MPG is going down with the AC on all the time. My truck has 5500 miles on it now.
I end up purchasing an aftermarket HU, new amp and all new speakers. The factory sound system sucks.

I'm a nit picker too, and I hate that alpine system. But it was 100 degrees here today and I can't complain about the AC, 3,500 miles.
