    Bad news---2014 GMC. A local mechanic who I trust says my condenser has a hole/crack in it. Can these be repaired effectively, or is it going to require a new one? Seems to be a fairly common problem according to him.

    I dont know about ur '14, but my '07 had to have one. My mechanic put a aftermarket one in it, and it kept going off on high head pressure, long story short......after readin on the innerwebs, i found out that i had to go back with a OEM coil. Problem solved, i guess aftermarket one was to small.

    Condensers are cheap. If I paid someone to do my repairs, I'd definitely go new.

    This is a VERY common problem with GM. Local mechanic’s quote was $750. After reading about this problem with a lot of GM customers, I found someone who suggested I contact the dealer and see if they would discount the price. I’ll be paying only about $300 now through the dealer. I wouldn’t have gotten this discount from the local dealer where I didn’t buy the vehicle.

    Spend it all before you go. He's already going to be sleeping with your wife, no need in supporting him too.

    There's plenty of Spanish, Oriental, even a few European immigrant women, that don't mind moving in with a well-heeled older guy! Don't put all your nuts in one cache!
