    Default Air conditioning

    I have a brand new vectra on an 07 plate with 1300 miles on the clock.Today with it being HOT i decided to switch the air con on.

    While it blows cold its not VERY cold.My last vectra froze your fingers after a while where as this one just blows general cold air.

    My thoughts are that the system isn't filled up to the top and was wondering about taking it back.

    Can anyone else tell me whether their newish vectra has freezing cold air or is there something up?

    If it does have to be topped up can Vauxhall charge for this?I feel that it won't have leaked coolant in only 1000 miles and so feel it was never topped up properly in the first case.

    I had heard that Vauxhall didn't fill them to max and when people complained the dealer could claim that the air con wasn't covered by warranty and so the customer had to pay.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    My signum is much colder than my astra was so maybe its a bit hit or miss? If you have a temp probe what temp is the air coming out of the vents? if its about 2 to 4 degrees then its probably ok
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    because leakages of gas are not warranted..gas can leak out of the condensor the compressor pump...and it's not easily proven where the gas has escaped from unless the system had been filled with a UV dye..

    videodoctor, i thought mine was not that cold compared to other cars ive been in with air con, however, when i turned it down to 16 degress it blows like mad and does get very cold. think we are used to the old on/off style air con, not clever temperature controlled stuff.

    That would be climate control then, not air con
