2020 Impreza Limited 5-door, Dark Blue with Ivory Leather.
It has been over 90 and humid for five or six days now in NE Ohio, so our AC has been subjected to a pretty strenuous test. Overall, we are satisfied with the AC's performance. However, its ability to cool the car is limited by two factors. First, there is a lot of glass area for the sun to shine through. Second, the interior is black, so after being parked in the sun for awhile, the interior temperature is somewhere north of 140F. Even running at full blast, it takes 15-20 minutes before there is a significant reduction in temperature. Shortly after that, the car becomes quite cool and comfortable. After a half hour, it even has to be turned down because it gets too cold....
I live in the northern part of the Sacramento Valley, and temperatures are in the upper 90s to low 100s most days in the summer. The AC in the impreza just does not seem to be cutting it.
...my impreza is black, so I know that’s contributing to my discomfort, as well as the moonroof I didn’t use to have.
Any suggestions? Anyone else not satisfied with their AC performance?
Good luck in CA. Hope you get some relief! Peace... Mack
