The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.

    My car is leaking freon. I took it to my mechanic and he believes the problem is the compressor. He did a leak test and found the compressor and another area was also leaking. I was recommended to a shop that specializes in a/c repair to confirm.

    From what I understand, this could get very expensive. Does anyone know if there is a recall on this problem? It looks like this is a common problem.

    A/C went from cold, to cool, to warm, and back again. Got worse over time. Had it checked out and the mechanic plans to replace both the compressor, Condenser and lines. The fix is going to cost $2,500! I haven't even finished paying the darn thing off yet! Very disappointed in Chevy...this will probably be my last one.

    Car makes a funny clunking sound when the a/c is turned on. The Chevy dealer said the clutch was loose on the compressor. They said I need a new compressor and soon it will stop working. Total repair $988.00. It is still working so I guess I will wait....I do not have $1000.00

    A/C compressor has fallen apart. Pieces were found in the A/C lines. Just found it on Friday May 16, 2014. Have not checked with GMC yet. Hopefully they can do something about it.

    Air went late last summer. Didn't need it until now. New compressor and parts $400+. Labor free as son is AC certified. Seems like the company should bear some of the cost as there are so many with same problem.

    AC blowing warm, bearings gone and to clean and replace AC around $1,800.00. Have been talking to GM about this problem that seems frequent, will let you know how I make out!

    A/c not blowing cold. Noticed while under warranty. They supposedly fixed it. It worked until the next summer, when we noticed it again and it was no longer under warranty. They wouldn't work on it for free anymore.
