1999 SL2
Default A/C and Acceleration

Hey,

When I have my air conditioning on, my acceleration gets super laggy. Its really obnoxious. Is there anything I can do about this, or do I have to just suck it up?

Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You could turn off your AC right before you have to accelerate, then turn it back on when you're done

some modern cars do this automatically

At WOT they do, but anything less than that they dont.

Not much you can do about it other than suck it up, or as said before, turn off the AC before accelerating.

Correct, that's what I meant to say thanks for clarifying, AC doesn't turn off under normal acceleration.
