    Thumbs down Peacock Cadillac - Houston, Texas

    About a year and a half ago this dealership installed a new A/C compressor and various related parts in our '86 Fleetwood. Two weeks ago the copressor stopped engaging, and since there was a life-time warranty on the previous work we took it back for repairs. After checking the car, we received the following estimate (for a $98 charge):

    The reason the compressor would not kick in was low refrigerant charge. The system has three small leaks: one at the dryer, one at the pressure switch and one at the evaporator core (don't know how they could say that, because the cover was never removed). Bottom line, $700 in parts and $1500 in labor.

    I took the car to an independent repair shop for a second opinion. Refrigerant charge is normal. The "leaks" were very minor and in a year and a half since the compressor was changed had only formed a very small wet spot at the fittings. The problem was an "A/C control switch". Parts $212.50 ..... labor $60. No R134 was added and the unit cools as well as before.....I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

    I, too, had bad experience with this dealership. They seemed like outlaws to me, so I didn't even let them have my keys. Instead I went up the road to
