1990 Mercedes Benz 300e

Air Conditioning problem
1990 Mercedes Benz 300e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 229950 miles

my mercedes mechanic has refilled the AC with freon for 2 seasons now, and each time he says it blows cold, but by the time I get ome, it is hot.

He now says it may be the compressor.

I cannot suffer another summer with no AC. Should I buy a used part to fix it, or let the mechanic buy a new compressor? I use the car 5x a week, and use it for my long travel trips.

It gets hot here in the south in the summers.

Thanks for your help
