Question 2012 2SS/RS - Driver's Side AC vents blowing warmer than passenger side

This marks the 5th time I've had to get my car (now with about 26000 miles) in to the service department due to the AC losing refrigerant.

In all cases, they have not been able to determine the source of the leak. The 3rd "repair", the refrigerant appeared to be completely evacuated. I was even asked "what did you do to it?!".

No visible leaks from multiple dye tests, valves replaced, the only thing left to replace is the coil and possibly even the compressor - it's a closed system, it's got to be leaking from SOMEWHERE.

I searched the forums and noticed others have had similar issues - has anyone had any luck finding a resolution? I'm just outside of my lemon law timeframe, so I'm essentially stuck with the car (although my issues began well before).

I love my car, just can't stand the level of "service" and repetitive AC issue.

Xavier1421,

Sorry to hear about your repeated A/C woes. I realize how concerning that would be and apologize for any displeasure. Keep us posted on the results of your dealer visit. If necessary, I can contact their designated Customer Experience Manager if you have any additional questions. We'll look forward to your updates .

Exclamation Same problem here!

I've been having the exact same issue on my 2010 SS/RS. My car hasn't been the same ever since I took it in to have it DETAILED and WAXED at AutoNation Chevrolet Galleria 4747 LBJ Freeway Dallas, Texas 75244
.
When I arrived to pick up my so called detailed car there were water spots all along the sides. Then I noticed that the only thing waxed on my car was the hood. I didn't have time to sit there and wait for the guy to do what he was already supposed to have done 4 hours earlier. So when I got in the car to leave. I turned the AC on all the way and noticed the driver's side vent was blowing out hot air while the center and passenger side vent were perfectly cool. This being the 2nd time I had gone back in and complained the service manager was called. He got in my car and noticed the dramatic difference. So he asked if he could drive the both of us around the block in it to see if it changes. Which it did get cooler but not very much at all. When we got back to the dealership he told me "It's a normal thing that happens because it's so hot outside. You just gotta drive around for a minute before it will completely cool off. You may need to have your AC recharged due to it being a 2010".

Probably the Blender Motor, "Door Actuator," Had this same symptom/problem on my Silverado. Service Manager recognized the problem and solution immediately.

I have had this issue from day one with my 2010. (hard to believe it is almost 5 years old!)
Is there any harm in not having it fixed? (other than it isn't as cold as it could be)
