Air Conditioner not working. Common issue?

So my wife's 2012 Cruze has just over 71,000km on it now, so well over the bumper to bumper warranty of 60k, and now the AC stopped working. Mind you she hasn't had too use it since last October when she was still under 60,000km, so something broke during the winter months.

Is the AC breaking on these car's a common issue? Were kind of pissed that we had to spend an extra $3000 just to have a Cruze with AC only to have it fail 3 summers later. And has anyone had any luck getting the dealership or GM themselves to help with the repair? Cause it kinda sucks that it broke during the winter months somehow and now when we need the darn thing its not working.

A common issue with the non-ECO A/C systems is rock damage. The 2011s and early 2012s don't have a $15 (US) rock shield in front of the A/C condenser coils, so they get punctured.


Hmmm i wonder if that could be it then. Gonna have to book the car in and have them tell me whats wrong with it. $180 fee to charge the ac, test and diagnose, then quote repairs after.

It also shouldn't be 3000 to fix it. I had my compressor leaking and I had a extended warranty and only paid 100 bucks other wise it would have been 700. I would just fill it up and see if it starts working, if it does I would just do that and not spend the extra money. If its the condenser still shouldn't be that much.

I meant it cost $3000 to have AC added to the car when we first purchased it since AC did not come standard.
