I was about to go on a long trip on Friday and decided it was hot enough to
warrant using the A/C.  So I hit the auto button and put the temperature all
the way down until it reads COOL.  After a couple of seconds, hot air blows
out at a high rate.  So I waited a couple of minutes for the compressor to
kick in and start cooling the air.  After about 5 minutes, the air becomes
semi-cool, not even close to A/C cool.  I have a 2001 S4 which had only 133
miles on it when I got it from the dealer.  How can a brand new car have a
problem like this?  You guys think its mechanical?  Or does the A/C need a
freon recharge?  If it does needs a recharge, how can this car be new and
need a recharge?  Do they come from the factory without freon and the dealer
refills it with freon when they sell them?
