Default 2006 PT Cruiser AC compressor failures


I have a 2006 Turbo GT PT Cruiser with 52K on it. AC quit working, just blows warm air. Took it local Dealership and they said it needed a new AC compressor, no problem as that is still covered under the warranty I have. In the past two months, they have put in 3 different AC compressors, all have developed leaks with within a few days. The one they just replaced last night only lasted an hour, failed at the Dealership. Dealership admits there is a problem with PT Cruiser AC compressor spares. They attempted to get Chrysler to approve using an "aftermarket" AC compressor, but Chrysler said no, not until all their stocked spare AC compressors are gone.

Anyone else having AC compressor problems?

This seems incredibly illogical. Why would Chrysler insist dealerships sell and/or install AC compressors they know are bad? That doesn't make sense.

If me, I'd go to another dealership and ask them about all this. Sounds like you may have been fed a line of bull from the dealership that worked on your car. There could well be something else wrong that's causing too much pressure at the compressor.
