Unhappy Oh those lovely SoCal freeways

So I take my car back in because the A/C isn't working again. Just after I get it serviced. Well wouldn't you know it, theres a hole in the condensor. Something flew up, smacked the grill, hit a hose, then gashed the condensor. It needs to be replaced and obviously not under warranty. So thats 500 bucks to replace it. Which menas no A/C on my trip to Vegas, that is going to suck.

No, that is REALLY gonna SUCK! I would probably abort a trip to Vegas with no A/C.

don't take it to the dealership take it to an air conditioning specialist in your area....
Ford Is way high on replacing just the condensor and recharging your system....

Well I can't cancel the trip to Vegas, unless work says I can't go.
But yeah I will look into one of those A/C specialty shops, that may be cheaper. Thanks for the tip.

No work isn't sending me, I am going to visit some family. If work was sending me I would be flying, and it would have been a week earlier than when I am going. It was just a time off request nothing more.

I am going to check my insurance policy to see if road hazzard damage is covered. Might increase my rates though.
