2012 Condenser Leak

Hi Fellow Volters,

My car has about 84,000 miles and the AC decided to go a couple days ago. I dropped it off at my area Chevy dealer and they texted me that the condenser leaks and that the repairs will be $ 1,730 parts and labor (apparently not covered under Voltec warranty). I searched online and the part seem to cost under $ 200.

He even mentioned that I needed to replace the cabin filter that will cost $ 59.95, which I already installed last year that cost me $ 14 online.

Anyone had the same experience? I'm thinking to buy the part and get my regular mechanic to work on it.

If "condenser" means compressor, then it SHOULD be covered under the 10-year Voltec warranty. But I think the compressor would cost more than $200 since it's a one of a kind 360VAC compressor. Do you have a better description of the $200 part that needs to be replaced?

I'm also in Houston, and of course the A/C is an absolute necessity. But since it's also necessary for cooling the battery, I have read multiple times that it is covered by the Voltec warranty (at least the parts involved with cooling the battery, and the compressor would be one of those parts).
