    Default Noticable power loss with air-con on

    I'm just wondering is it my imagination or does the 1.9cdti 150 seem noticably down on power when the air conditioning is switched on?

    I have noticed that my car feels much more lethargic and I will have to drop a gear in situations that I wouldnt have to if the air-con was off.

    I would expect this in a 1.2L or similar but not a car with 150bhp.
    Anybody else noticed this?

    I have a 2.2 petrol non direct and i have same thing, You can hear the aircon kicking in and its as if the engine dies. When up to speed its ok but getting there is a mission.

    The vectra isn't alone, all cars with air suffer a dip in power, if you generally use very revs to pull off you'll notice it more, it you drive it like you've stolen it, you probably wont
