2008 Hyundai Sonata Q&A
2008 Hyundai Sonata Question: AC Compressor Replacement for Hyundai Sonata?
I took my 2008 Hyundai Sonata with 56,000 miles on it into the dealer to have the air conditioning unit looked at because it blows warm air -- basically when I'm driving slower around town, but it blows cold air just fine when I'm driving faaster down the freeway. They said the air compressor needs to be replaced to the tune of about $1,000. My boyfriend wants me to just try recharging it instead. He knows nothing about cars -- is this something a novice can do? And, will this possible "fix" work actually for awhile, or will it make things worse? -- should I just bite the bullet and get the thing replaced? - Sonata Owner
If the compressor is bad it would do no good to recharge. I recommend that you ask around for a shop in your area that specilizes in A/C work. That could be a way to get a second opinion of problem and perhaps get a lower price of a repair. - milesauto
