2009 Kia Spectra Q&A
2009 Kia Spectra Question: how can a a/c compressor fail at 38600 miles on 2009 spectra?
did you purchase car new, do you know for a fact that the ac system never had meddling diy fingers in it or had been non professionally serviced? things do break unfortunately this doesn't seem to have as long as a life as it should but unless you had extended warranty on 5 year old vehicle the manufactures warranty will probably be lapsed. - solo1511
Original owner? No history of prior service to A/C system? MAYBE get a second opinion (read that as 'diagnosis) at an independent shop with known good references. - ziptie12
