I took my 2010 Ford Focus to the auto mechanic in Fullerton CA one month ago because the AC was not working. He said the problem was the hose that goes from the compressor to the condenser. He replaced the hose which it was labor+parts $350. Now, the AC is not working again and the same mechanic is saying that the problem is the compressor but that his previous work had been done well and did not have anything to do with the new problem. He wants to charge now $799 for new compressor+labor. Isn't it a bit awkward just one month after the AC repairs? What do you think and recommend?

Yeah. Chances are when he recharged the system after replacing the hose he either didn't properly evacuate the system prior to charging, didn't properly lubricate the system, or both. Take it to another mechanic and get their opinion. Then call the California Bureau of Automotive Repair if the first mechanic doesn't pay for the repairs.
