during recent trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas, the car I was in a 2014 escape 1.6 ecoboost, a light came on instructing  the driver to turn off a/c . the temp outside was about 110 . the car is about 4 months old. the road was hilly but not severe hills. is this common?

That only has to do with 'Eco" or economy, for FULL potential economy it means turn off A/.C and suffer. Sweat it out for the benefit of Mother Earth. Go ahead and use the A/C and enjoy your drive in comfort
