Default 2014 Chevy AC

Anyone else own a ‘14-‘15 Silverado and have the condenser go out? Sucks to the tune of $800. Classic Chevrolet in grapevine was no help.

I have a 14 and noticed the AC isn't blowing cold. Haven't had a chance to take it to my Mechanic yet.

Yup, poor manufacturing. They should have used high strength steel instead of aluminum

I’ve had it go out on all 3 of my 15s, and everyone of our fleet trucks. $800 is WAY high. $402 is the most I’ve paid out of warranty.

At least 7-8 of ours have been warrantied. I’d rather pay an individual mechanic though. Our warrantied trucks took weeks due to the backprder of the parts. Local AC shop and we’ve been in and out within the day every time.

My wife’s ‘15 Yukon just did the same thing a few days ago and recharged with dye. Sounds like whe’re going to find the same thing.

2014 Chevy, my condenser leaked and I had to replace it. Terrible design flaw. $605 to fix is what I was charged

While I agree that’s it’s a widely known issue that should’ve been corrected a long time ago our Chevy fleet has still been cheaper to maintain than any others. I’d still choose Chevy for our fleet. We haven’t had any other issues whatsoever, and these are hard miles.

Any tundras in your fleet?

I've got a 2015 Silverado. My compressor didn't go out. It blew a hole in itself almost the size of a baseball.

Extended warranty paid for it, so not too big of a deal for me.

My wife's '14 Silverado just had the a/c go out. Had a very small leak at a weld too.

Yes. Our field trucks are about half Tundras and half GMs. No issues with the Tundras whatsoever that I know of, besides they’re the only ones our guys seem to consistently wreck lol we have had zero wrecks in our GMs in the past 4-5 years, and we’ve totaled 3 Tundras in serious accidents. No fault to the truck, just bad luck.

My 14 Silverado compressor blew apart. Think it was around a $800.

We’ve taken several trucks to a local AC shop in Odessa. They have us back in business for about $403 each in a matter of hours. The dealer was far too high, and far too long. Looking at weeks instead of hours. I got 62k miles out of my first AC, and just got rid of the truck last week with 125k total on. So it had 63k on the second AC without signs of failing.

2015 here and same thing. A buddy works at the dealership and said it is a design flaw and Chevy is aware but not offering a fix at their cost.

Have my fingers crossed. The AC went out on my 03 Avalanche on Monday, it goes into my mechanic tomorrow.
