My wife bought a new 2012 Chrysler 200 Limited back in April. We love the car, and everything has been great with it - quality, materials, ride, handling, etc. However, my impression is that for a new car, it doesn't cool off that quickly, and the A/C just doesn't freeze you out like all of our other cars have (R134a on the 97 Camry was like an icebox).
Yesterday I was washing and waxing the car, and when I opened the hood to clean under there and check the fluids, I was shocked to see that the decal for the R134a says that the system only holds 16 oz of refrigerant!
I know that efficient designs can wring a little more out than in 1994 when the conversions were final, but this seems ridiculous - most cars I've seen will hold between 28 and 32 oz of R134a. Are there many, or any, other new cars out there with so little refrigerant? How well do they cool you off? This could be a lot better if the system were designed to hold more.
