Hi all,

I've owned a 1st gen 2008 Mazda 3 and now a 2nd gen 2013 Mazda 3. I've noticed on both cars when the compressor kicks in the 'click' is quite loud. Not over the top but louder than I've heard from other manufacturers. Also whilst driving on the highway and it kicks in you can notice brief power loss and a 'jerk'. Is this just a Mazda AC quirk? I can live with it - but wanting some second opinions.

Thanks!
