I'm not in Arizona, but it is currently 104 in Dallas. In the afternoon, I put it on max cool for about 5 min and the turn the fan down to the second lowest speed the rest of the way home. It definitely cools better than my husband's 2012 Outback. My Ascent is Pearl with the Slate Black interior.
I should add that I am too lazy to put up a windshield shade or park under a tree...I figure once it gets this hot, it is going to be hot in the car, no matter what.
