Same here, excellent air flow and cold. Of all the vehicles we've had in 20 years, this one has the best a/c. I too prefer the a/c on with the top down and at 90-100 degrees it feels great when you have it blow alittle on your feet.

Savannah, Ga agrees with this post!

Also with the top up, I find it is a lot better if I take one of the main vents and point it at the center of the ceiling. Keeps the black top from heating the inside up at all.

Sunny, 90+ degrees with 100% Humidity in stop and go traffic it feels dang good with cold air blowing on your face...

I always do it. Especially when I'm stuck in traffic and the sun is cooking me. It is good to have cold AC blowing in your face.

Mine is good. If you're riding by yourself, close your passenger vents and have everything else aimed directly at you. AC systems are relative though, the warmer it is outside, the warmer your AC will be, however it will always blow colder than the ambient air. It's physics.

Yep...When I have the top down and at 40 miles an hour... Other than that, it can get pretty cold.

Mine seems anemic. Fan at high just kinda seems like its blowing kisses with the top down. At stop lights it's barely felt. Has anyone used a wind screen and gotten better cooling or am I asking too much here in Arkansas when its 90+ degrees?
