Im in the Tampa are where is 95-98 with 90-100% humidity almost everyday. The A/C works great as it should just like any other car (at least all the other cars I've owned). Why would you think otherwise?

I had a Mazda 2.3l 4cyl once and the a/c had a hard time in the over 100 degree temps. It was the only 4 cyl I ever owned and was concerned that with a 1.8l 4cyl the a/c may have the same problem.

My wife had the same 4cyl Mazda 3 (2010 Model) and she had the same problem with the a/c. So we sold the Mazda & bought en 2011 Elantra and the a/c is perfect.

I live in Phoenix. I test drove the demo CT over the July 4th weekend and on that saturday it was about 118 degrees out. The thing blew cold in no more than 2 minutes and within 5 i had to turn up the thermostat a few degrees. Its a Hybrid, but it is a Lexus.

The air conditioning works great, but it does affect your mileage.

We have had 23 days of 100+ temperatures so far this year. Most days have been 103-105. The AC is working great even in ECO Mode. We are suppose to get a break next week. We're going to cool down to 100 degrees. LOL

We have been at over 100 several days this year, the car cools off quickly and stays cool, no problem with the AC.

Glad everyone likes the A/C. That is one of the fine points in a car when I buy.
I never have the A/C off in any of the cars. Will check mileage when mine comes in.

The A/C/ in the car is great. It cools the cabin in a minute or 2 if you have it set to automatic. I've gotten in the car when the thermometer has read 95 degrees. The Nulux seats gets warm but never scorching hot. The gas mileage does suffer a bit. I've noticed getting 47.5 mpg with the A/C running mostly and 49-50 mpg with it off. Get a sunshade to reflect the hot rays of the sun.

The older Mazda3's must have had better A/C as our current '06 Mazda3 GT 5-door's system is fine (we do have the auto A/C which will switch to recirculate when the temps get real high and then switch back so perhaps that's the difference) same 2.3L engine.

I had a CT out for a test drive NW 'Burbs outside of Chicago with temps near 90 and it had no problem maintaining a cool cabin with 4 on board.
