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.

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.

All cars can have this problem its not a design error on the cruze. Yes the plastic screen can help which I added on my 2011 but do a google search and you will see all makes and models have this. You best bet to stop this is to not follow closely behind trucks and stay away from people who like to drive on the edges of the road where a lot rocks get thrown up from.

I know people say they don't follow close but if you aren't 1 car length per 10 miles per hour you are to close.
