I've never had problems with the A/C. I live in North Carolina, and the heat here frequently reaches 90-92. We have one of the worst smog ratings in the US, due to coal-consuming power-plants upwind. We also have Ozone orange and red days often in the summer, whatever that means.

I've never left my A/C on the 4 setting for more than 3 minutes, and the 3 setting for more than 10 minutes. I rarely hit bumper-to-bumper traffic, so maybe that is it. I have no tint, but I am going to add some simply to preserve the interior. Also, I turn the output selection about 10-15% toward the floor, with most of the air coming out of the vents. Maybe this helps?
