Default Re: Chevy Aveo AC Problem - Rs.70,000 repair quote?

Had an AC compressor issue with my Chevy Optra 1.6, 2005 model earlier this year. Total cost for replacing and labor charges etc was around 20,000 Rs. The dealer seems to be taking your friend for a ride. Look around before committing.

When taken to the dealership, the service person said that the condensor needs to be replaced and the charges for condensor, AC service labor is Rs.70,000. The car was in warranty until 2011 december and this has happened just 5 months after warranty expired. The dealer person called in person later and said that he can fix it out of the dealership for Rs. 45,000. I am confused what was going on??

Is Aveo so costly in terms of spares and service?
Rs.70,000 for an AC job is like 20% of the cars current value which is very bad.

Is it possible to fix the AC condensor of SuperKing in an Aveo, long back one of my friend fit a Superking AC in an Opel Astra where the OE AC unit of Astra was very expensive.

Can anybody share if there are any such experience / knowledge in fixing this?


Thanks for the suggesstions. As per advice from forum members, my friend got it fixed from TORQ motors - I knew this person when I were in
Chennai,s o I recommended him there. The total cost was 18K. It was the condensor that was leaking. It is now replaces and two discharge hoses have been replaced and gas filled.
However for a 4 year oldcar these many things getting worn out is bad IMHO
