It is just not cold. This does not change whether I am idle or driving with 50 miles an hour for 10 minutes. The air is more like room/air temperature.

If this is something less than $200, I'd probably get it done at the dealership. If it is a $500-$600, then I'd better find an independent AC shop. Have no clue...

Thanks for responding!
No such thing as just a $200.00 repair at the dealership. They normally charge you $200 just to scan the trouble code and tell you what's wrong before they hit you with the cost to fix it.
