    It's not just you, have seen many others say the same. Mine probably takes >20 min to be blowing cold air. Before that time it's usually just "cool" if that makes any sense.

    Common problem. Can't tell you how many times I have seen people complain about it. It's pretty weak and is also really prone to failure in some cars. My car in particular seems to be working fine so far with the a/c and heat, but wouldn't be surprised if something happened to it with all the people complaining about it.

    There's something about these old model Toyotas with stupid-cold AC. I really love that aspect.

    A quick warranty visit to the dealer helped a little for me. I think the factory tended to charge it just under the recommended specs.

    Mine is frigid in summer and warm in winter. 99% I leave it on auto mode.

    Speakers sound better during cold days for whatever reason.

    Enjoy it while you can.
    It seems many of the aircon systems fail within three years. They are very flawed.
    I am not looking forward to expensive repair bills every 2 or 3 years.

    My 2001 Civic blew colder air after 17 years than my 2018 Civic does after less than 2 years.

    $2400 for a potential repair vs. $4000 guaranteed loss on a trade-in.

    Back in April, I brought my '16 Touring to dealer to have my a/c repaired. It wasn't blowing any cold air. I thought it was because I hadn't turned on the a/c since the previous summer, and it was roasting in a parking lot for 4 hours, but no, definitely not that. Dealer repaired or replaced something with the condenser. It's been fine since.

    But yeah, older models seemed to blow colder. '08 Civic was still blowing ice cold when I traded it in. Just last week, my brother-in-law actually commented on how cold the air was in my wife's '09 CRV.

    Historically A/C isn't a strong point on the civics
