Should I pay anything for this repair? Took car to dealership with AC problems. $150 for diagnosis. They called and said it’s problem A and will cost $700. I said ok. Now they call me and say that didn’t fix the issue, we need to address problem B which will cost $2500. The market value of the car is ~$4000

Yeah I would even get a second opinion at a local trusted mechanic. You’ll have to decide if you want to risk a new car or spend 5 months of payments to fix your current ride at some point.


No. Sell, & buy new (used) car if you can. See what you can get for it on Carvana.


Try YouTube. Took my car to the dealership for an A/c issue and they said it’d be $600 so I Youtube’d the possible issue and it was a $20 part and I fixed it myself. If you don’t have the time / can’t figure it out. Get another car because they’ll just continue to try to make money off of you. Plus it’s getting cooler so hopefully you can drive the car a bit longer and save before you trade up.


That must be one hell of an AC you got in there.


Lol 😂

Lol, tell them to pay you $3500 and keep it.


Look for a smaller repair shop on Yelp. Bring the car to them. Don’t get maintenance done at a dealer unless it’s a warranty-covered issue.
