Few questions after taking the car in for service yesterday.
I wanted the oil changed and tires rotated, plus a leaky rear tire patched. Shop wouldn't patch it, said it was in the tread but too close to the sidewall to do. This was at a AAA car care center. Should I try somewhere else or cut my losses and opt for four new tires? The back two have more life on them, and one tire in the front has a plug, so if this couldn't be fixed (and I'm tired of filling up with air once a week), it would pretty much only make sense to replace all four. I was hoping for 20k more out of these.
Secondly, the serpentine belt was recommended for replacement. The car as 152k on it and I purchased with 95k and have not replaced it. It may be original. It looks a little cracky, so I'm thinking this is legit. Does that sound right?
Lastly, the shop indicated the A/C compressor needed replacement as there was fluid leak near it. The A/C blows colld but I haven't visually inspected it yet. Is it possible there is a cheaper fix to this leak? The quote for the part was $500 plus $300 in labor. That's pretty damn expensive. Does this sound right?
I'll be taking for a second opinion, just wondering if you guys had any thoughts for me.
