Rough Air Conditioner? 2019 Signature

2019 CX-5 Signature Soul Red Crystal Metallic
Hey guys,

Today I sat idling a little more than I typically would in a drive through, and noticed that the AC on my 2019 Signature seems to.. be rather loud and really kicks on so much that it's noticeable.

Does anyone else notice that their AC compressor (or .. whatever it is!) kicks on quite a bit and is quite rough/noisy?

Not me.

I have a 2019 Reserve and am rarely in stop & go traffic, but when I have been I've not noticed anything out of the ordinary. I don't know that I've ever been in an extended idling situation like a drive thru.

Hope you get it resolved.

Nope. Have not noticed any unusual noise due to the A/C. We have done a lot of idling, too.

Idling in the parking lot last night waiting for my wife to return from the store and the A/C was on. Smooth as silk and very quiet.

I can barely tell when it kicks in. You should get yours looked at.

Dont forget both cooling fans strike up when the aircon kicks in.
