Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a rav4 2001 and have had it 10 years my sister asked when i last had the ac serviced as it was colder than her renault megan which is 2 years old so was wondering how often my rav4 A/C needs servicing

You know the old saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it?" If it's 10 years old and blows colder air than your sisters 2 year old Renault, I would leave well enough alone. You should only have it serviced if the A/C light flashes or you notice that it starts blowing warmer air. That's usually an indication of it being low on gas.
