AC not cold enough

It got up to 96 degrees here today. My wife and I were out for our Anniversary dinner. We had the AC on in the Malibu and it just seemed like it was not cold enough. With the fan on full blast and the recirculate on it didn't help. I have an 02 Cavalier with 140,000 miles on it, the AC has never been touched and it is way colder then the Malibu.

We hooked the car to set of gages and it seemed to have a full charge. The car just turned over 7000 miles. Anyone else seeing this problem?

I think ours has the same problem. We took a 50+ mile trip today with the temp at 96 and humidity was 90%. Set the auto climate to 69 and it never reached it. Never.

My 00 Formula blows ICE cold and cools the car down within minutes. Malibu not so much.

I think we are going to take it to the dealer this week as well to get it checked.
Im far from fat but Im a big guy. 6'6 and 220 lbs. I get pretty hot.
Ok, so tint make a freaking HUGE difference. The darkish interior in the car makes it like an oven. The tint makes is way cooler.
