Just another up date -
I received a call from my dealer a few days ago and was told that the charger and the compressor for AC were toast.
With 63,000 km ( 39,146 miles ) on the car,
The charger was covered but.....
I was 3,000 km
( 1,864 miles
) over for warranty on the AC compressor.
A moment of panic hit me when I was quoted almost $ 4,000
I told him living here in Canada I could lived without AC.
and was told that the car must have the AC operational in order to control the battery temperature.
Now I know we had a discussion here one on this subject but thought that we concluded the batter was NOT actively cooled.
I protested the quote of $4,000 and told them it was not acceptable, He said he would look into what he could do for me.
I spoke with Mitsubishi Canada and was told it was the dealers call.
Got a final call from the dealer service department today, Mitsubishi offered the compressor free of charge and I am paying the dealer for installation and the coolant recharge I settled for that- about $ 400
It's been 3 weeks today,
I should have Blacky back next week .
It will have been almost a month of paying for gas again. - ouch
