I hate to ask this, but is the A/C in the Prius supposed to be as cold as in a 'normal' car? Mine takes 5+ minutes to cool down the interior, where all my other cars can have me comfortable in a minute or two. At least they all blow cold air from the beginning that you can blast in your face. The Prius does not get cold for several minutes.

Mine cools in about 20 seconds or less, even today when it was 104,
I'd have the system checked.

Mine cools quickly also in my 04. I leave the A/C on auto year round with the temperature set at 73. Works fine.

The lower you set the A/C, the more effort it puts into cooling. Hi fan, recirculate, whatever it needs. If cold air isn't blowing 30 seconds after you lower the set point to 15 degrees below the current outside temperature, take the car in for examination...
