    I own a linea 2014 T-jet. I feel my AC is not very effective. At afternoons(35-40C temp), AC takes a lot of time to cool the cabin even at 'LO' setting of auto AC. Is my AC weak or its a characteristics of Fiat?

    @Ranjeet I too have 2014 Linea T-Jet (May Purchase) and till date have not faced weak AC issue. As a matter of fact on my both long trips I had to keep the ACC temperature setting higher as cabin was getting chilled. Suggest to get it checked with FASS.

    With an ambient temperature of 40C , any AC will struggle. Keep in mind that you're aiming for a 24-25C differential between inside and outside temps, which is a lot. Darker cars parked in the sun are even more difficult to cool. What helps is driving with the windows down and the blower at higher speeds for 5-7 minutes and then rolling the windows up.

    The pollen filter should be blocked,search in the forum as to how to clean it and your problem is solved.
    Even my A/C is very in effective and is very suffocating inside inspite of the fact that the car went for service only a couple of months back.Since my car is going to a free service camp at Puduchery tomorrow I have decided to get it done there.
    Did you guys get the call for a free check up from Fiat?
