A/C not working well. By comparing high pressure readings against a new vehicle on the lot it was determined that a reflash of the PCM would remedy the situation. According to dealership, A/C pressures were the same following the reflash. It was determined that a front strut was leaking and not assembled correctly at the factory. A new strut and related hardware were ordered. Parts arrived (after dealer verified owner's observation of a leaking and misassembled front strut assembly on previous visit) and were installed at this time.

Despite a PCM reflash in 2010, the AC still was "underperforming" when temps exceeded 95 degrees. Tech found a later reflash which improved AC function to be more in line with what it should have been (41 degree discharge air/105 ambient).
