Average Mileage: 97,400 mi (50,000 mi - 190,000 mi)


The AC may stop working due to a refrigerant leak from the condenser. GM has developed and updated condenser and mounting bracket to help prevent the replacement condenser from failing in the same manner.

    Fan, etc still blows fine, all vents, but no cold air. Shop did a diagnostic on it and said "hole or puncture in condenser. Approx. $1,200-$1,300 --- new condenser $360-460....labor intensive.
