mohammad - Really good point. When I was in my early 20's, my car that I had until 28 years old done went and busted its A/C. The car had more than 150k on it at that time, and I drove it until it had about 298k on it (and then got crashed). I was working my first engineering job (for peanuts). I drove that car FOR YEARS with no A/C. And that was in Georgia and Tennessee. And it gets blazing hot down here. Even to this day, I use the A/C in all my cars (including my Lexus) very very little. I mostly just put the windows down, and enjoy the breeze and the sounds. When I'm hauling down the interstate though, and it is over about 80įF outside, and the sun is bright in the sky ... then I will use the A/C. I'll not use the A/C until about 90įF if it is cloudy. At 80įF and sunny, the inside of the car is a bit too much like a greenhouse. I'll also use the A/C just about every time the wife is in the car, because princess...
