Took the car in to get the AC looked at as it's been rubbish since I got the car (2012 diesel XV) 18 months ago. The garage tested and found a small leak in the condenser, a genuine Subaru part is going to cost in the region of £300, plus an hour and a half fitting and gas. Probably around £500/£550 all in. The garage are happy for me to get an aftermarket condenser and they will fit and fill it. Question is: has anyone used any aftermarket AC condensers, any to recommend /avoid. Or should I bite the bullet and go OEM? Online I can see aftermarket ranging from £70 to about £120, a denso one would cost around £100. That's a big saving if it lasts a reasonable length, most seem to have a 2 year guarantee. Comments and thoughts greatly appreciate.
To all you Subaru owners who “feel the love”. I don’t. I have a 2013 Outback 3.6 in which the outside temperature sensor refuses to work for from 30 minutes till never after the car is started and moved from an 80 degree garage to a 95 degree outside environment. Because of this the “full-auto” option on the AC will not function. I have documentation from my Dealers Service writer who noticed it indicating 80 degrees when the outside temperature was 102. A sensor was replaced. No help. I have contacted everyone at SOA and the conclusion is that it is operating correctly. I have not asked for money or a different car; I just want my Outback to get some love. If you have heard of this let me know or if you know of someone who can help please forward this to them. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you. PS I am desperate so you may see this on other pages connected with Subaru.
