So I have a 2011 cruze 1.4T that was making the typical whooshing noise from the A/C compressor. However when I got to work yesterday I noticed that the noise changed and got 10 times louder. Looked under the hood and sounds like the bearing in the compressor is about to seize up, I used to work for a chevy dealer so I know the sound is coming from the compressor and I was waiting for it to do this because of the whooshing noise. I just hit 75k miles and I know the compressor isnt covered under the powertrain warranty but I am a little irritated that the compressor bearing is going with only 75k miles on it. I had a older focus that I traded in for my cruze that had 225k miles on it with the origional compressor and the A/C still worked. What are the chances of GM doing a goodwill warranty on my compressor because its a known issue and I still have under 100k miles? If they don't cover it should I chance buying a "AC delco" one from online or should I take it to the dealer and spend roughly $750 to have it fixed (that's what I was quoted this morning). I have also talked to a certified mechanic at a chevy dealer and he agrees that its my A/C compressor that is making the noise.
