2009 chevy aveo ac compressor

Asked by Jun 18, 2015 at 02:54 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just had a quote to fix my air
conditioner in my 2009 chevy aveo.  
It was priced at 1800 by midas in
clovis, CA.   I'm going to get a
second opinion,  but the tech said
that  this car has a type of
compressor that can't be replaced
without replacing a bunch of other
stuff.  Basically, he was saying it has
a special kind of clutch that is not
engaged using the same mechanism
that most other cars use .   I've never
heard of any such thing before. Is
this a legit assessment or someone
doesn't know what they're talking
about?

Book time on labor is 1.5 hours. Even at the highest rate $80/hr that's only $120 http://www.cars.com/auto-repair/estimate/ Say $300 compressor, $120 labor, even add $100 for refrigerant gas ans misc. = $520.

http://www.napaautocare.com/estimator.aspx# Parts $469 - $735 AC Compressor Labor $156 - $198 So $1800 is double what it should be. I just kept checking different estimators to make sure

My 2011 Aveo had the ac compressor, expansion valve, freon, and labor all for 500 bucks.
