Asked by Apr 05, 2015 at 12:28 PM about the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LS

Question type: General

I bought the 2013 vehicle new and in cash.  I paid over 19 K for it and the air conditioning
system has been repaired four (4) times, each time the car was kept for over a week.  
Today a very hot day in Florida, and it is AGAIN, blowing out hot air.  Any suggestions, at
this point I don't want the car.

Where are you taking your car that the garage has it for over a week? Find a competent AC repair shop in your area, it sounds like they are not replacing the seals and the refrigerant is leaking out. Fairly simple procedure to someone who knows what they are doing in a couple hours.. If you don't want the car anymore, you can always sell it yourself or trade it in. Post on this site, it's free.

If you have been taking it back to the Chevrolet Dealer (I hope so) and they still can't fix it then you have a lemon. Under The Lemon Law you have legal rights to getting a new car if yours can't be fixed. Talk to your local Office of Consumer Affairs or an attorney. Nobody should have to put up with this kind of nonsense with a brand new car! HTH. -Jim

Frontera_792 did u finally find out why your 2013 ac done this ours is doing it to


Mine is also doing this. It will not work and then 5 miles down the road starts blowing cool. Sometimes it is hot and never cools. Sometimes very cold from the get go.

I have a 2013 Chevy sonic as well. The condenser, and compressor has been changed out. I'm still having problems with it not staying cold!
