Yes, the A/C was working fantastic during the summer season leading up to the compressor replacement. I never had any issue whatsoever, and I'm the sole owner of the car. I can't tell you how great it worked after they replaced the compressor, since it was replaced in February and I live up North where it's freezing that time of year. The compressor locking up caused my power steering belt to snap, which is when I was alerted to this problem. Last July when the issue first came up, the dealer inspected the car and told me they couldn't find any problems. The A/C wasn't nearly as "cooling" temperature wise as it had been previously. And now, today, I have no A/C at all. It's been less than 12,000 miles since the compressor replacement.
I must add. Personally, I don't appreciate being insulted. I'm not a moron, I am quite capable under the hood and have a general understanding of the workings of the A/C system. All hoses are in place and in tact, and I haven't noticed any oil on the the a/c hose where it connects to the compressor.
