I own a 2015 VW Passat TSi SEL (4 cylinder gas engine). I drive a fair amount for work and have put about 88k miles on the car in just over 4 years.
The AC compressor started to whine about three months ago, and when I brought it to the shop (at the dealership) they said it was likely going to need to be replaced in the near future.
My question is whether this is a common occurrence and if anyone who has experienced this has received any special consideration for the replacement costs as this is a part that typically lasts much longer than 4.5 years.
Also, if this happened to you, how did your heater core hold up as well, as I am afraid that will be the next issue…
