I just cracked 94,000 miles and I am only on my 4th year of ownership. By no means a record (others here are already past 100K) but a far cry from normal mileage.

Moral of the story: I shouldn't work in one state while living in another!

I read the owners manual and warranty book from cover to cover. After 12 months the warranty still covers components, the freon itself becomes an owners cost. All things considered it becomes a choice of each dealer as to wether they charge for the R134a or not. Lots of dealers don't but some do.

The one component that most times is rejected for warranty is the condenser. Most times when they leak is caused by stone/road debris dings.

A dealer can do a leak test and determine leak or part failure.

My 2011 had only one problem with the a/c. Once in a while it would not blow cold and I had to turn the car off and back on. The more computers put into cars the more software contributes to problems.

Hot in Boca

Sounds like a film title...

I'm going to go back to the dealer about the air conditioning. It's a brand-new 2014 sonata GLS and I shouldn't be having such problems with cooling already. I know the car cooled quickly when I first got it.

Mine is going through the same issue. If I'm not moving the car blows hot air. Going down the road the cool air comes out.
I am having this exact same issue right now with the used Sonata that I recently purchased. I've had it looked at by a few people and they've decided that it is the evaporator sensor. It has malfunctioned which is not allowing the compressor to turn on and stay on. When you go faster, your rpm is high enough that the little amount of time it is on is enough to cool down the air.

It's a bit confusing - I don't fully understand it myself - but I'm taking mine in on Monday to get it fixed by Hyundai.

Lemme know how it goes. It doesn't always do it, just occasionally. I also noticed with eco on (yuck) my air is colder.

I have a 2006 Azera, Last week the driver side stopped blowing cold air. The passenger is doing great, so I am sure the compressor etc is working fine. I have tried all settings, dual, single, both, recirculate etc and nothing works. Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad blend door actuator.

I had another car that had a bad ac pulley bearing that was really noisy when the AC was in-gauged but not when the AC was off. It didn't make sense because the pulley was turning all the time weather the compressor was on or off. When I replaced the bearing the noise stopped.

Thank you guys for this topic. Once I had a case when my air conditioner gave out a temperature of more than 40 degrees Celsius. However, since then, I try to make orders that will not cost so much and the work will be better. A couple of years later I had another case and I started looking for good analogues to fix this problem, later on one of the forums found a site https://www.socool.sg/ which helped me keep the guarantee of investing money on my air conditioner.

My 2014 Sonata GLS has definite air conditioner problems. It takes some time for it to get cold. I had no problems with my 2011 Elantra - I never had to turn the air conditioner to its highest level. In addition, it cooled almost immediately. However, I have to turn on the Sonata's air conditioner to full capacity and wait several minutes before I get some cool air. When it's 95 degrees out here in Florida, a few minutes can seem like a long time.

Haven't had my car checked yet. Anyone else have a similar problem with the air conditioning in the Sonata?

Hey bocashore,
Okay, you have the 2014 and I the 2013. AC had been good since we bought it. Two year ago. Great car right, we love ours. Anyway, recently tried to recharge the lower port with a can of freon and I saw gas/liquid there at the end of the charger hose connection, what I was holding not the car's equipment. It's like the pressure from that port would not allow any in. I'm a Freon self charger my own cars. Somehow the port did not allow any Freon in, it kept escaping or just being forced out. So no Freon ever went back into the system. It was zero pressure when I started the procedure and still zero after. So I am reading books and trying to figure this one out. Never had a system not take the Freon like that. I'm starting with checking the everything first, start cheap or free as they say and your way down work towards the more pricey stuff. So currently all options on the table..about where to start .If a part is bad I must identify it, [hopefully by a test] and not assume everything in the system is shot... Still blows air real well, but its humid moisture rich air and that does not feel good. Relate to you somewhat in North Carolina so similar air to Florida. You send us some of your air and we send you some of ours... sometimes... Keep investigating and asking questions... appreciate it... Reading a good book now on these thing... I'll let you know if I figure out what is going on with it.
