I am considering buying a 2017 infiniti Q50 signature and I'm concerned that consumer reports rated the AC, (They lump climate into one category so...?), Well, what's wrong with their A/C? In Texas, if the AC doesn't work, it's a bad thing for old people like me. Is the AC really bad? Or what's the story? Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level? They gave it a 1 out of 5 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Q50 yourself? What have you tried so far? I haven't bought the car yet. I'm asking if it 1) really IS a problem and 2) if so, WHAT is the problem, and 3) how SERIOUS is the problem? Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? IThat covers all O know

Hello, My name is\*\*\*\*\*'ve been working on cars since 1990, I have been a Just Answer expert since 2008. Thank you for contacting us for assistance with your vehicle. I will be happy to assist you. You will see an option to receive a phone call prompted by the website, you can agree to or decline. If you do not wish to use the Phone Service, we can continue chatting this way back and forth until you are satisfied with my help. Just keep in mind, it does take me time to respond. I am a Automotive Technician, I am not a fast typer. So lets get started.... Can I ask to whom I have the pleasure of speaking with today?

Automotive Expert
Hello Gavin, Nice to meet you! I don't know where you are reading this. But I have worked on these cars for years and the only thing I can tell you, it's not the Ac that is the issue. It's the interface screens that normally what people complain about. But that was more common when they first came out. Since then we rarely ever see issues with the front display screen. Did you check it's operation on the car you are looking to buy to test it?

Sorry, I lost the page hereIt's winter so, of course it blows cold airI keep getting these ads for phone conversation covering the... EVERYTHING. and then I can't get around the damned thing
Automotive Expert
The phone I can't help you with :) But I think you are fine with the car. Just the older ones tend to have screen issues which of course can affect the air operation

What's wrong with the interface screens. I thought they were fantastic. I loved the way they are so intuitive to useThe salesman couldn't figure them out, but it's just so simple. Great feature
Automotive Expert
The screens when they first came out would go out or freeze. But on these newer cars, we don't see it as much any more.

Hello? What about the screens? Do the screens fail? Do they lose connection? What's wrong with the screens?I'M NOT BUYING THE GOD DAMNED PHONE THING UNTIL I LIKE THE TEXT PART, GOT IT?DEFINE "NEWER"Did I accidentally vlick on the "call me button and obligate myself to more monthly charges?
Automotive Expert
As I said, the screen issue is what you mainly are probably reading. But that was on 2014 and 2015 models.

Please. What are you calling "these newer carsthank you. \*\*\*\*\* click on the "call me button " accidentally and obligate myself ....?It's hard to chat with this ad floating around all the time between my questions and your answers
Automotive Expert
I did not see a pop up for me to call you. So I don't think you hit it. I have no control over the adds I am afraid. I am simply a expert trying to answer your question on your concerns about the Q50. So when I say newer cars. I am speaking about more recently made vehicle. Such as the 2017 to 2021

If I don't know the number from which you'd be calling from, and I put in my contacts, I can't get the call. So that's why I askIf I were to click for calls, I'd need to know that number the calls would be coming from. So I wouldn't know one way or the other
Automotive Expert
You did not click anything for a phone call

If it's possible for me to get that number, then and only then would it be if value to me. Another option might be to get a second line from the Google apps so I could provide that number that has no filtering on it
Automotive Expert
Sorry? I don't understand what you are asking?

Then y'all could use that number to call me
Automotive Expert
I can not speak to customer unless premium service is requested.

This phone call service.
Automotive Expert
Would you like to speak with me?

If you're going to call me, it be useless to call my phone unless I have your number. My phone rejects all calls not in my contacts. See? So if I had your number the I could put it in contacts. If y'all use many phone numbers, that wouldn't be practical, you see? However, I could buy a "sideline" or an app such as this that gives my phone another number for people to use that is not blocked in the way I described.
Automotive Expert
Then I will offer you the phone service and provide you with my personal phone number

This would mean that every time I contact someone, I'd have 6go through all this explanation every timeati get the phone numbersorry about so many typosto get the phone numberThank you for your help with my infiniti purchase

You are very welcome. Have a Happy Holiday!

I have a Volkswagen Passat question
Automotive Expert
You would need to ask that question under the VW Category.

I have a 2003 VW Passat W8 wagon. I was driving, I zoomed up to 60 quite nicely after just finishing a repair to my VVT actuators. It idled great again, so I was happy. Just as I thanked my stars etc, the engine cut to idle with my foot on the gas. I limped along with intermittent engine throttle. I decided to try turning the engine off and restating it. It worked and I drive, carefully, around to several errands that day. It got worse and was a real puzzle. I replaced the throttle body. No difference at all. My OBDII showed that the VVT Actuator failure codes WERE GONE, YAY. But it showed a 2101 throttle body actuator motor malfunction and of course with the engine cutting out like that, it recorded timing advanced on the exhaust actuators on both sides of the V8. Errors, not actuator failures. I think it looks like I have an intermittant connection to my Throttle body. How can I, by myself, fix this? If I take it anywhere, the MO if shoos is to find faulty part, replace part with OEM part and done. That's not going to work on a 17 year old car. I drove it all day yesterday and the throttle cut but I pulled my foot of the gas so fast it did not even turn on the engine light. When I was almost home, I floored it and made it fail with the 2101 Throttle body Actuator motor failure. But it's brand new. It's a wiring problem. What can I do?
Automotive Expert
As I said, you would need to ask this question in the VW Category. We are limited to one topic per question and I am a Nissan & Infiniti expert. You would need to summit this question to a VW Expert in the VW Category

I have had the seat module fail. I just pulled the plugs and out them back on, with some anticorrosion spray and it's worked for 10 more years. I COULD be a corroded connection. Why didn't this question get transferred to a VW mechanic. I said I had a VW problem. That's the first thing I sent.
Automotive Expert
This original question is in the Infiniti Category. You can't have multiple questions for multiple vehicles in one question. So you would need to go back to the home page and ask a new question in the VW Category

I don't see categories. I never selected an infiniti categoryI said, "I have a Volkswagen Passat question"There are no categories to choose from
Automotive Expert
There is a VW Category
