Our new SEL FWD 2022 Tucson has an AC that feels like it's struggling to cool down the car. Never gets truly crisp cold air just dull and half cold. Anyone else experience the same?

Thermometer in the vent the measure output lists 40 degrees so it's cold but it never really cools down the car or passengers.

^ I find the AC in my 2022 Tucson HEV is not as cold as my previous vehicle ('18 Audi Q5), but it's cool enough for me/us. When it's really hot outside it helps to put the Tucson's climate control system into "recirculate" mode. Needless to say it also helps to close the shade for the panoramic moonroof, if your vehicle is equipped with that option. I live in south-western Ontario and summer weather here is typically pretty warm (mid-to-high 80s F.) with quite high humidity (80% +).
Do you live in a state that experiences frequent high temperatures? Where are you located?
You may want to bring your Tucson to the dealer to have them check out/verify the correct operation of your vehicle's air conditioning.

Funny, my wife and I ended up test driving two different limiteds the day we bought ours (different colors... And we just wanted a second opinion/drive). With the first one we drove, the a/c didn't get super cold... But we chalked it up to be super hot outside+a relatively short test drive.

We ended up buying the second one (because of color preference)... But my wife noticed pretty quickly that it got much cooler than the first one. I assumed that maybe it was a dealer prep issue, and our a/c is working fine so maybe that's it.

But if yours isn't cooling sufficiently, it's worth looking into.

My Tucson hybrid A/C does not get as cold as my previous 2013 Elantra GT. I was chalking this up to it being a hybrid, but maybe not after reading this. I do live in Florida, so it gets a lot of use and do wish it was better.
