Default A/C Control Switches and Panel Question?

Our 2008 has a bad A/C control panel. When the part was ordered the repair shop could not believe how inexpensive the part was, $60.00! He made the comment, that they must have alot of problems with this item! Has anyone else had issues with the A/C control going bad? I am thinking I should get a spare if that is is the case.

I haven't heard of the control panel going bad at all. Only once did someone find that the wire control came off the end of one of the doors on the HVAC control that opened and shut the direction of the air flow.

What exactly is the problem that your having that points to the control panel?

In speaking with a Tech, he told me that in the data base that he uses for info and tech help, tells him that these panel are a very weak part of the car.
I think that is what is wrong with ours. A new control panel was installed and it smoked the panel! They ordered another one, but are sure that the new panel was bad.
