is it better to sell my 2012 kia optima hybrid with no air or pay 3500 to repair my ac and keep the car
car runs great and in great condition. but ac does not work and minor dent on
side. dealer wants $3500 to repair the ac. don't know whether to sell at $1700
or pay for repair and keep driving till she dies completely.
Get a price from an independent shop! Dealers prices are outrageous.
I agree with F_O_R stay away from Stealerships. Independent shops are the best way to go for any vehicle that is out of warranty. Now as it is a KIA best to look up the value of the vehicle first and if it is worth a lot more than the independent shops quote then fix it and drive it till just quits running altogether.
All the car gurus are quite helpful. The problems I found when taking the suggestions were. No one wanted to touch a hybrid ac. The compressor for the hybrid started around $1000.00 at a parts dealer because it was an electric motor type. I was told that Kia had a monopoly on hybrid ac repair. Thank all of you very much Think I,lol just take it to a dealer and see what they will give me for it in a trade. Thank you
UP DATE Tried several auto repair shops but no one wanted to touch except 1 Stewarts Auto Repair. Fixed a/c with used compressor cost $1020.00 better than dealer wanting $3600. Thanks Guru"s Your All Helpful
